~The Osprey silently circles high above us as we fish, watching for the released fish that flap at the surface. Surprising us with a bull's eye dive within a few feet of our boat, the fish is snatched up with barely a splash. We all watch opened mouth and speechless as the Osprey heads back to the nest with dinner.~
This is a Bald Eagle. It is America's National bird. They are endangered mostly because of the Pesticide DDT. These birds used to eat the roots that were contaminated by the pesticide and their nesting and feeding sites were spreaded.
