On The Wing
Several weeks ago, Melissa and I noticed a Bald Eagle sitting in a tree alongside the road. Yesterday as we traveled along the same road, the eagle was still hanging around. I decided to take its picture. When I was growing up they were seriously on the the verge of extinction. A rarity to see in the 70s. As a kid, I thought I might never see one in the wild. We see them often today as their numbers increase in the lower 48 states. A true success story.
