LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) -- The latest survey of the golden eagle population has counted 112 birds in a region covering southeast Minnesota, southwest Wisconsin and northeast Iowa. The count was conducted last month by the National Eagle Center. Project coordinator Scott Mehus says there was a scarcity of juvenile birds.

He says only 19 of the 112 eagles were young birds. Some 171 observers conducted a one-day survey on January 18th.

They drove more than 4,600 miles to search for golden eagles.

They also counted 878 bald eagles and 400 red-tail hawks. The Wintering Golden Eagle Survey is part of a project to learn more about the golden eagle population in the blufflands region.

This was the 10th year it was conducted.
