The traditional release of rehabilitated bald eagles has been the central feature of Bald Eagle Watching Days in Sauk Prairie, but the event is not taking place Saturday because the handler isn't available.
Eagles were released a week ago, so those eagles and plenty of others are ready for gawking and photo taking as hundreds of lovers of the majestic raptor flock to Sauk City, Prairie du Sac and the Lower Wisconsin River Valley.
Events start Friday night with the live Birds of Prey show at the River Arts Center in Sauk Prairie High School (two shows on Saturday).
Free guided bus tours to popular eagle viewing sites are planned, with buses leaving from the River Arts Center. More tours have been added because the bird release was canceled.
Presentations from eagle experts are also planned, along with kids activities, visits to the largest private collection of birds at the Tripp Museum and much more.
