Bald Eagle Anniversary

Photo of a bald eagle flying into the sun.

Sweet Success!

Each year on or about this day I post a photo of a bald eagle to recognize and celebrate the fact that five years ago today the Fish & Wildlife Service announced that the bald eagle in the lower 48 States had recovered enough to be removed from the list of threatened and endangered species.  We almost lost it due to DDT and other persistent pesticides.   Thanks to Rachel Carson, the Endangered Species Act and other factors, the story of the bald eagle in the lower 48 was a story of success.  The same can be said for other species like the osprey, which was also hurt by DDT.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t always work out that way.

        I need to invest it a good camera with good zoom. Currently I have a GoPro camera which takes great photos but has no zoom, and I have a camcorder which can zoom but it’s a cheap way to take pictures, haha. I might have to invest in a canon camera
