Lake CdA Eagle Count Climbs To 217

The bald eagle count at Lake Coeur d’Alene had climbed to 217 eagles on Monday, according to Carrie Hugo, a U.S. Bureau of Land Management wildlife biologist. Of the 217 eagles, 196 were adults and 21, juveniles, Hugo said in an email. The numbers are up from Hugo’s last count on Dec. 18, when she found 129 bald eagles in the Wolf Lodge Bay area. That was up from 86 eagles the week before that, according to Hugo’s weekly count. For decades, the eagles have provided a popular wildlife-viewing attraction as the birds are lured to the northeast corner of the lake from mid-November into January to feast on the spawning kokanee that stack up in the bay/SR.
