With new aviary the Coeur d’Alene Tribe is poised to protect eagles

Monday was a monumental day for the Coeur d’Alene Tribe. They officially opened an aviary designed to provide eagles, those which have been severely injured and unable to survive in the wild, with a lifetime of food, protection, and care. Such conditions can result in an eagle living for nearly 50 years, much longer than those exposed to life in the wild.

Local ice climbers headed to the hills this past weekend looking for waterfall ice. Nick Sweeney and Zach Turner drove to Hyalite Canyon in Montana and met up with Ben Ward. Sweeney said the climbing was good although it’s “definitely early season, some thin and brittle ice had to be dealt with. All the classic routes are in good shape to climb.” During the last weekend of November, Chris Celentano and Ben Read adventured in the Idaho Selkirks. The ice was thin but “getting better” Celentano said.
