MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources say they are very close to having eagles nesting in every county in the state.

Aerial surveys on the number of bald eagle nests are underway.

DNR says new breeding territories were recorded throughout the state last year, specifically Northwest, North-central Wisconsin and along the Mississippi River.

This latest count follows a record number of occupied nests in April, including Racine County – which documented its first eagle nest.

The DNR says aerial surveys and rescues are funded by donations through the “Adopt an Eagle” fund. More information can be found on their website at dnr.wi.gov and searching for “Adopt and Eagle”.
