Sweet man, I see bald eagles here from time to time, they tend to like large rivers, and I live right near the St. Croix and the Mississippi. I saw a huge one eating a fish about 20 feet away from me last year when I was out walking near one of the little creeks in town, he was parked on a frozen part of the creek going to town on the fish. Love to see them flying around too, they are majestic.

The re-emergence of bald eagles after being an endangered species is a great victory for conservationists.

I am really considering financially supporting some other conservation efforts, as it is really troubling and sad to me how many animal species are experiencing rapid decline in their populations. And the worst part is that human activity is so often the culprit. If we're going to dominate the planet, it is my opinion that we have a duty to protect species from extinction whenever possible, and respect natural habitats of animals around the world.

This is sort of a new passion of mine and I really feel compelled to get involved in some small way to help conservation.

Remember Crocodile Hunter Steve Erwin, rest in peace. His message - CONSERVATION!

That's pretty cool.
You can help by going to wildlife refuges and visiting preserves as well (buy a yearly pass for example)... this gives them income to help make them a balance neutral organization. I like to do this from time to time, you know the money is going to a good cause, and you can learn from the specialists there, etc.
The most interesting one I went to recently was in WA state, and it was a wolf rescue operation.

Buy hunting licenses! Just about all non-game wildlife conservation/management is funded by fees attached to hunting licenses. In reality all of the donations made by folks toward these efforts add up to only a small fraction of the costs, the rest is picked up by hunters, for species they do not hunt.

Bald eagles are cool! They are getting pretty thick around here the last decade or so. I had one swoop in and steal a fish from me, as I was looking for the stringer and not at the sky.

I saw this item in the news last week, some guy found a hurt bald eagle while out on his Harley, wrapped it in his leather jacket and strapped him to the bike, and drove it 50 miles to Duluth, MN, effectively saving its life. What a great story.

While possessing a bald eagle is technically illegal in America, acting in good faith to try to help the eagle when hurt apparently is not.
I saw a bald eagle maybe two weeks ago on a walking path in town by the river, it was cool.

They're back! Another year of Eagle Cam is up and running. The same pair that raised three ofspring last year has been building up the nest and mating. Eggs should be coming in the next week or two.

They also installed some night vision equipment so the show can go on at night. Also on the blog they have a tracking device on one of the eagles from last year's hatch and you can see where the eagle has been roaming.

Mating is fun.
Do Bald Eagles mate for life?

Eagle cam is back!!! This is the same pair I have been keeping up on for three years. They have already mated and we should see the first eggs in a week or so. After that it is about 40 or so days until they hatch. Last year they had a night vision cam which was pretty cool. One of the eaglets fell out of the nest last year and was rescued and put back in the nest.

It's really amazing how these birds operate and it's been a blast watching the same set of parents successfully raise their young. It is nature however and sometimes things go bad. Luckily, since I have been watching the pair, they haven't lost one. Enjoy!
