On December 22, 2019, Cynthia Carlson visited the boat landing at University Bay and captured several Bald Eagles on the ice and in trees with her camera. It was cold but sunny, and a good day for catching fish along the edge of the advancing ice. Chuck Henrikson was also watching.
That same weekend, on her usual trek from Shorewood to Picnic Point along the shore past Frautschi Point, Genevieve Murtaugh of the Friends spotted ten Bald Eagles in the air and on trees, and two more at Picnic Point. With her iPhone she was able to photograph adult and immature Bald Eagles surveying the scene from tree tops.
