Salute to the American bald eagle

Unique to North America, the bald eagle is the continent’s most recognizable aerial predator, with a shocking white head, electric yellow beak, and penetrating eyes. In the 1960s, this symbol of the United States became an emblem of environmental degradation as the pesticide DDT and other human pressures brought it to the brink of extinction. But following their protection as an endangered species, bald eagles have come roaring back.

Watch an amazing hour-long documentary online at: PBS American Eagle

A special thanks to our military who are responsible for the freedom we enjoy.
