AMERICAN EAGLE FOUNDATION (AEF)

http://www.eagles.org/programs/aef-nest-cam.php

The above link will take you to the American Eagle Foundation's site.  There, you will get an inside look at the efforts involved in helping bald eagles maintain their positions in the wild places of America.  Once decimated by the pesticide DDT, they have come back from the brink of extinction to enjoy a healthy population once more.  If you enjoy and appreciate our precious wilderness and the inhabitants in it - I urge you to visit this site to learn of the monumental efforts put forth by this organization to help these magnificent birds maintain their position in the wild places of this country.  The hacking station spoken about is located along Douglas Lake near Dandridge  here in East Tennessee.  The eagle I photographed last week, C  2, is mentioned in the write up.
