Tonight, the Perpetual Notion Machine rebroadcasts a show that originally aired on January 19, 2006. Every January, the Sauk Prairie area, that includes the towns of Sauk City and Prairie du Sak, invites people to watch and learn about Bald eagles that come to winter along that part of the Wisconsin River. Bald Eagle Watching Days has always been quite a hit, but this year will be different. Everything will be virtual. In the show 15 years ago, we talked with Jeb Barzen, wildlife biologist with the Ferry Bluff Eagle Council. He explained why eagles like it here, their biology, their feeding and mating habits and other behaviors, and his ongoing research in radio tracking a number of eagles.
