If you have been following me on Facebook, you have seen that it has been bald eagle week in honor of our nation’s symbol. If you don’t, no worries because all of the pictures will be posted here again.
The return of the bald eagle has been a stunning event that I have witnessed first hand in my lifetime. When I first started canoeing in the early 1980s we hardly ever saw one, and if we did it was an enormous deal. The bald eagle was endangered in almost every state. Only Alaska, Florida, and Minnesota had sizable populations.
Once we stopped poisoning them with pesticides, they made an incredible comeback. We can thank Rachel Carson who wrote Silent Spring about the crisis for raising awareness to their plight.
Happy 4th of July everyone and enjoy the bald eagle photo essay.
