The annual Bald Eagle Watch is this week. Starting Dec 26th and ending on Dec 30th, 2012.
Last week there was a count of at least 260 Bald Eagles. So you should be able to spot plenty of them congregating for their annual winter feast of those tiny little spawning Kokanee in Wolf Lodge Bay!
BLM and Idaho Department of Fish and Game will have staffers at Mineral Ridge boat launch and Mineral Ridge Trail head.
Eagle ambassadors will have high-power spotting scopes, mounted displays and interpretive materials available 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
DIRECTIONS: Go east of Coeur d'Alene about 8 miles on Interstate 90. Take the Wolf Lodge Exit. Both of the staffed viewing areas are along Highway 97.
In the case of bad weather be sure to check for cancelations or updates by calling
(208) 769-5048 after 9 a.m. each day. BLM will also post a message on the Coeur d’Alene Field Office webpage.
