Volunteer opportunities are available for those interested in watching and monitoring bald eagles along the Fox River during February and March. Monitoring is open to all ages and is done from half an hour before sunrise for 90 minutes after. / Rob Zimmer/For Wisconsinoutdoorfun.com
Every winter, scores of bald eagles descend upon our area to spend the winter feeding along the flowing waters of the Fox River. From Lake Winnebago to the mouth of the river at Green Bay, there may be hundreds of eagles present at one time during winter, gathering in large numbers in areas near sections of open water where they feed on winter killed fish, waterfowl and other prey.
It is possible to see these majestic birds sweeping through the skies and along the river right in the heart of downtown in river communities such as Neenah, Menasha, Appleton, Kimberly, Combined Locks, Little Chute, Kaukauna, Wrightstown, De Pere and Green Bay.
During the winter season, monitoring of sections of the rivers for bald eagle numbers and behaviors is performed, with information and data collected provided to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
