Welcome to Bald Eagle Watching Days – Virtual for 2021
Though eagles might concentrate in large groups in winter for the survival of their species, with the current pandemic, humans should not. Ferry Bluff Eagle Council President Jeb Barzen welcomes you to Bald Eagle Watching Days – Virtual for 2021. He will share the exciting schedule of events we have in store for you over four Saturdays in January and February 2021. Jeb will also introduce a brand new “Self Guided Eagle Watching Tour.” It’s an App that can be used with your smartphone, tablet, or computer to locate where Bald Eagles are roosting along the Lower Wisconsin Riverway. It is a fun and socially distanced way to get out to see eagles this winter.
