Bald Eagles

I spotted this pair of American bald eagles roosting over the banks of the Yellowstone River last January.   Bald eagles are becoming more of a common site in this area after having been nearly wiped out through sport hunting and the use of pesticides .  Thanks to reintroduction programs and the regulation of chemicals like DDT, the eagles’ numbers are rebounding throughout much of their natural range.
