It’s good news for fans of Haliaeetus leucocephalus in Ohio. Bald eagles that is. All-American big birds, rapturous raptors. Gotta love ’em.
Today’s local paper has a terrific photo of what appears to be a juvenile bald eagle. There’s also a good article about the ODNR’s efforts to attract, spot and monitor bald eagles here in Ohio. 2006 is a record-breaking year when it comes to bald eagles in Ohio. It’s exciting and it has us looking forward to doing more things outside as Howie heals. We and I can’t wait until he’s feeling good enough to go birding again. This surgery has given us both a new lease on life. I hope we never take this great gift for granted.
