MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin's bald eagle population hit a record high this year.
The Department of Natural Resources says air and ground surveys counted nearly 1,600 occupied nests statewide. The Journal Sentinel says that's up nearly 6 percent from last year and is the highest since the survey work began in 1973 when just 108 occupied nests were found.
