DNR officials confirm first eagle nest in southeast Wisconsin since the 1800s

RACINE, Wis. (WSAU) - Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources officials say a eagle’s nest has been confirmed near the Fox River in Burlington.

Experts say it’s the first eagle’s nest confirmed in the area since at least the 1800s. Nesting grounds for eagles are more common in northern Wisconsin. The confirmation came last week in southwest Racine County when a DNR wildlife technician flew over the nest. Seth Fisher didn’t see eggs, but did see an eagle hunkering down in a way which suggested it was incubating one.

Eagles are monitored by the state because they are considered to be a species of “special concern.”
