PHOTO OP ED: A remarkable recovery for a remarkable bird

Illustrating the bald eagle’s remarkable comeback in Wisconsin, the noble raptors have been seen frequently this winter in Ozaukee County, especially soaring above Coal Dock and Upper Lake parks in Port Washington.

This one was recently spotted by Ozaukee Press photographer Sam Arendt perched above a farm field in the Town of Port Washington.

Additional evidence of the bird’s recovery is a survey released by the Department of Natural Resources last month that recorded 1,695 occupied bald eagle nests in the state — the most since the survey began in 1973.

All Wisconsin counties, except Milwaukee, are now home to nests.
