Wolf River Eagles 2012

On June 2nd 2012 a small but caring group met under the nest and started the day for banding the 2 eagle chicks in the nest.
MJ Electric and lineman Dan Ver Hagen were on site with the bucket truck and we were ready to roll.
The 2 chicks were young enough they did not object one bit. Had they been older it would have been more of a issue.

This may seem to be an easy project, but it is not. It takes a great group to pull this off. This is never an "I" project. It takes of lot of "WE" people. Thanks to all of you that made this happen.
April 2012, one sitting, one guarding.
