WILDLIFE WATCHING -- The annual gathering of bald eagles in the Wolf Lodge Bay area of Lake Coeur d'Alene is underway.  S-R staffers saw four at Higgens Point as they drove by on I-90 today.   Dozens more probably went unnoticed.  The numbers will build, usually peaking in mid December.  The eagles come to feed on spawning kokanee.
