Wish I were watching eagles from Duluth right now!

Yesterday 679 Bald Eagles and 30 Golden Eagles were counted by Karl Bardon from West Skyline in Duluth. Wish I were there! Hey--if you're around, this is really fun to see!


  1. Wow... I don't ever remember that many Bald Eagles in Duluth. That is great!!

  2. What a great day for the guy that's counting! Imagine how thrilled he must have been to tally that many birds. And a good number of Golden Eagles also.
    The early spring that we are experiencing in Minnesota & Wisconsin may be sending those birds back up N. Where I live in Hudson, WI, many years the St. Croix River has a back-log of Eagles as they await the ice off further N of us. When that happens, it's great fun to be outdoors and hear so many Eagles nearby.
