Eagles are a particular favorite bird of mine. In many areas the Bald Eagles were in trouble due to the use of pesticides. This caused their eggs to have extremely soft shells and they would break. This led to a lack of new young being raised and they slowly disappeared. Recently, since pesticide use has changed, the Bald Eagle has started to make a comeback with many breeding pairs appearing more and more. Hopefully we will always remember the damage these chemicals have caused and the many species it affected will continue to thrive. I've also included various Golden Eagle photos I've taken. This bird just gives me a feeling of total awe with it's beauty.
