WDNR wildlife specialists Bryan Woodbury, and Joseph Henry presented the 2009-2017 Citizen Scientist Data for Fox River Eagles at the January 13th Eagle Monitoring Volunteer Reception. Some of the most interesting data included the increase in sightings from 2009 to 2017 during the five months during which monitoring is conducted. On the average, there has been about a 50% increase.
The month of January is typically the month in which the most sightings are observed.
The largest count of eagles occurred in 2013 and again in 2017. Can’t wait to see the results for 2018.
Monitoring eagles is infectious. Once you try it, you’ll be waiting for the next month you can do it again. For more information contact Cheryl Root. No experience is necessary; all ages welcome!
