WILDLIFE WATCHING — Responding to my blog post and today's news story about the big start to the annual bald eagle congregation at Lake Coeur d'Alene, a member of Inland Northwest Divers said most visitors see only half the show.

Scuba divers love this annual event! We dive below the water to see the kokanee salmon below, so we see the action both above and below the water!

The photo above is one of several the divers have collected this year of the spawning kokanee that attract the eagles that attract thousands of visitors to the spectacle.  See  more photos on the group's Facebook  page.
