Bald Eagles Arrive in Coulee Region


People from all around Wisconsin, and the region, are stopping in La Crosse for a wonderful sight in the Coulee Region.

As the snow starts to melt and the temperatures begin to rise, the bald eagles are arriving in La Crosse.

The new Eagle Watch area on the northside of La Crosse is getting plenty of use during it’s first eagle season open.

Dozens of eagles were out on the Black River Thursday afternoon, being enjoyed by many.

We just drove by and we seen two eagles on the river and stopped. My wife is over there taking pictures of them, says Tom Mullens of Sheboygan. It’s beautiful, it’s nice I like it. I’d like to bring my grand-kids here, I’d like them to see it.

Bald eagles can grow to be 14 pounds and have a wingspan of up to eight feet.

Wildlife experts say the Coulee Region is a prime location for bald eagles to migrate because of the natural habitat and plenty of food.
