We ♥ Snow Birds! Bald Eagle Behavior and Habitat – LIVE
Bald Eagles return each winter to an area stretching from the Alliant Energy Hydroelectric Dam just north of Prairie du Sac, WI to the eagle roosts near Lone Rock, WI, and beyond. Gathering in large groups is not normal behavior for bald eagles during the warm months, but is necessary for the survival of our majestic raptors when the smaller lakes and waterways freeze up elsewhere. Jeb Barzen, wildlife biologist and President of Ferry Bluff Eagle Council, will provide an update on the current convocations of eagles and share insights on why Bald Eagles choose the Lower Wisconsin Riverway for their winter home.
