    +++DEAD EAGLE FOUND (2008)

    The body of what is likely the oldest documented American bald eagle in the upper Midwest was found May 16, 2008, near its nest on an island of Razorback Lake. The female eagle had a leg band which was traced to 1977, having been placed on the bird just north of the Michigan border in the Sylvania Wilderness Area. It was found by a DNR fisheries crew which was doing a survery in Razonback Lake. ##1497 31-Year Old Eagle Found Dead, Vilas County News-Review, June 25, 2006## The article contains a photo of the leg band.
