We have a lot of them here. When I was growing up in the 60's and 70's you never saw them. They have made a good recovery after we stopped poisoning them with DDT.

Great eagle cam view.  One adult was in the nest when I looked.  Of course it just threw up dinner for the youngins when I looked. :(

Same here except '70s and '80s. :smilewink:

 

I can't recall ever seeing an eagle when I was a kid.  Now they've made an incredible come back along the Susquehanna River valley.  I fact, I saw three last week.  It's not unusual to see a dozen or more at the Conowingo Dam in MD.

 

 

Now ringneck pheasants... that's just the opposite story.  They were in every field when I was a kid.  Now you're extremely lucky to see one a year.

I read the other day that the success of the eagles has been bad for seabird populations that breed on small islands near the coast. The eagles have been cleaning house on them and this could end up with them being endangered.

Berry College is just up the road from us in Rome GA.  They have a lot of things going on with animals.  You should see the hears of deer especially in the fall that grass on campus.  A deer hunters dream!

We have an eagle cam for a pair nesting near our local trout hatchery.  Here is the link

I have a nest a little over 200 yards from our house that has been there as long as I can remember (35+ years). You take for granted seeing them all the time where I live, but I always enjoy seeing them around and would definitely miss them if the ever left.  

 

Thanks for sharing...reminded me to keep an eye out for our valleys pair which are sitting on eggs now.
