The nest is the first confirmed active bald eagle nest in Kenosha County since records have been kept.

The announcement of the find was part of the department’s weekly news report released Tuesday.

The¬†exact location of the nest or on whose land it is located was not included in the DNR report, except to say it was “in a large tree along the edge of an agricultural field.”A DNR representative told the Journal Sentinel the nest was in “central Kenosha County.” The exact location is being kept secret to protect the birds.

A DNR representative came here recently to confirm the nest.

    We had a pair of bald eagles fly over our house in Salem/Silver Lake at the end of February. They were really low! Git a real good look at them. They are majestic birds. Glad to have them here! Hopefully they stick around awhile.
