Eagle appreciation this weekend in Southern California

This amazing graphic ran today in the Orange County Register. For a readable view go to Focus National Bird.

The bald eagle has been the symbol of the United States for more than 200 years. Although decimated by hunters and the use of pesticides in the 20th century, the species has recovered thanks to federal protection and conservation programs. Eight years ago, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service removed these resilient birds from the endangered species list.
