Bald Eagle - 3rd Year

Shot last winter at Farmington Bay, Utah.

 

I highly reccommend watching the PBS-Nature production "American Eagle" which is currently playing around the U.S.(don't know if the series is broadcast in Canada). It documents a Bald Eagle pairs attempt to raise their young in a very harsh environment. Reminds me of winter around the Great Salt Lake.

 

The bald eagle's resurgence is one of the great triumphs of conservation.

Once nearly extinct, the symbol of America has made an astonishing comeback. From Florida to Alaska, the bald eagle once again flies the skies. And in numbers so great — "many thousands," according to the experts — it was removed from the endangered species list in 2007, although it remains protected.
