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!
Indeed, the photo she made (above) is an eagle egg's view of an adult baldy finishing the last few bites of a spawning kokanee.
The annual Eagle Watch Week begins today with experts and spotting scopes available in the Wolf Lodge Bay area.
