From the Wolf's Eye:
16 bald eagle nests were occupied,
with 16 chicks confirmed and 16
successfully fledged, the highest
ever recorded on Isle Royale
♦ 36th year of loon surveys on Isle
Royale; 208 adults documented
(long-term average is 220), 44
chicks fledged (higher than average)
♦ 3 sites were monitored for
potenal peregrine falcon nests,
but only 1 juvenile was confirmed. The nest at Passage Island was not successful for the
first me since 2012.

Thats great news. Eagles and loons are my favorite birds to photograph. Will be on the lookout for eagles on my VIP Photo trip.

Chief, every time I have been up on Mr. Franklin, there have been eagles riding the updrafts on the north face. Good luck, and I hope you find some eagles for great photos!
