Eagle Watch Week

Accurate scanner: As snow begins to fall over Lake Coeur d’Alene, a bald eagle perches in a tree along Lake Coeur d’Alene Drive and scans for dying kokanee salmon near the lake’s surface on Thursday. The annual southward migration of bald eagles has begun and the number of birds, drawn by the availability of spawned out salmon, will peak around Christmas and New Year’s, then taper off as they continue south.

Okay, so I've never made the CdA eagle watching pilgrimage. But honestly, how many of you have?

From Rich Landers Outdoors blog:  WILDLIFE WATCHING — Carlene Hardt heard about the huge numbers of bald eagles congregating at Lake Coeur d'Alene and finally made time on Sunday to go out and see for herself.

“I was NOT disappointed,” she said in an email. “I saw LOTS of bald eagles! I have been out there a few times in the past but this is the first time I had the opportunity to see one eating in a tree right behind me! The eagle sure did eat the fish fast!
