From Dan Jackson:Results of the Golden Eagle Survey are below. Also note that the National Eagle Center is running a Golden Eagle Seminar / Field Trip on Saturday, Feb 12 at 1:00 PM. Rather than running our own separately, it would make sense to join Scott Mehus on this trip. He is much more familiar with where the birds are hanging out and we will see MANY Golden Eagles by joining him.
To take part in this event, I would suggest that we leave La Crosse at 11:30. This will allows us to get there in plenty of time for the program and field trip. I will find out from Scott when this field trip will end so that interested people can plan.

From: Eileen Hanson [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Wednesday, January 26, 2011 3:00 PM Subject: 2011 Golden Eagle Survey RESULTSGolden Eagle Spotters, This year’s Golden Eagle Survey was a great success. More than 100 people volunteered their time and efforts looking for golden eagles, driving almost 3,000 miles throughout the bluff lands on Saturday, January 15th. Together you saw 81 golden eagles, 58 of which were identified as non-immature, or adult golden eagles. Most of the goldens were seen in Wisconsin (65 total – 53 of them in Buffalo County), but 16 golden eagles were seen in the Minnesota. (Note: There were 16 Minnesota survey areas, compared to 26 areas reporting from Wisconsin so far.)
There will be a WMBD event at Myrick Park on Saturday, May 6, 2023. Events will include a bird walk at 6:30 AM, a family bird walk at 9:30, a bird presentation by River Valley Raptors at 10:30, and many other bird-related activities that make this a great family event.
The Myrick and Hixon Forest bird walks will be held on Tuesday (Myrick) and Thursday (Hixon) mornings from April 25 - May 11, 2023. The walks start at 6:30 AM and go until about 8:30. The Myrick walks will start from the base of the Rabbit trail near the Myrick Park Center and the Hixon walks start from the parking lot at the end of Milson Court. Due to severe flooding, it is likely that we will not be able to walk the marsh trails for the Myrick walks (at least for the first 2 weeks). We will adjust if needed by walking along the edge of the marsh and heading into the Oak Grove Cemetery (just west of Myrick Park). These walks are free and open to the public and will be led by Dan Jackson and Pat & Bobbie Wilson.
For our February Membership Meeting, Alan Stankevitz will give a presentation on Bird Photography. Alan is professional nature photographer from the Coulee Region. He will be sharing hints and tips on how to become a better photographer and will also share some of his outstanding photos. As always, this meeting will be free and open to the public.
