One of our most iconic birds, the Bald Eagle is a true comeback story. With only 417 breeding pairs left in the lower 48 from an original number of 300,000 individuals, an effort in 1963 was born to ensure this majestic bird did not disappear from the skies. DDT was found to be the culprit causing egg shells to be so thin, the sitting parents would break the eggs. Today the birds are back to totals of over 170,000 individuals. This gorgeous specimen has a mate and nest on Kalamaka Lake, BC.
