Have you noticed a lot of eagles around this winter? If you live along an open river like I do in Calgary, Alberta you might have seen eagles patrolling the water. They’re looking for a duck dinner to ward off starvation.
Bald eagles were on the endangered species list in 1973 and have made a remarkable comeback although try telling that to a juvenile eagle. They have a 50% chance of surviving their first winter.
I recently wrote about the gatherings of eagles in Calgary and southern Alberta. If you’re an animal lover or photographer you might want to check out my suggestions in this Calgary Herald story on where to find the birds.
