When winter comes, many birds fly south. Well, with the exception of the weird flock of ducks I have seen and the normal wintering birds. In Eagle River we are fortunate enough to see the eagles hang around all winter long. Sometimes, you will find between 50 and 100 eagles wintering. These North American Bald Eagles are commonly seen gathering around mid day near the VFW parking lot. They awaiting the “Eagle Lady” who comes out and feeds them during the winter. We are very lucky to live in an area with such abundant wildlife, even in the winter.
