Best places to view the wintering Bald Eagle

January 21st, 2010

From Green Right Now Reports

As mascots go, the U.S. Bald Eagle has been much beloved, but not always well tended. Once prolific in the U.S., the population wavered and fell dramatically in the 20th Century — until biologists discovered that DDT and other pollution was impairing the bird’s ability to reproduce.

That was one big canary in a coal mine.

With DDT now banned, the Bald Eagle has rebounded, and was removed from the Endangered Species list in 2007. There are now an estimated 9,000 or more Bald Eagles living in the wild in the U.S., according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
