COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) - Public land managers say the number of eagles flocking to northern Idaho's Lake Coeur d'Alene has unexpectedly dropped.

Bureau of Land Management biologist Carrie Hugo counted 223 eagles last week compared to 367 counted last year.

BLM spokeswoman Suzanne Endsley says the eagles may be focusing on other food sources this year, like Lake Pend Oreille.
