American Bald Eagle sighting

This picture was taken on 4.29.2012 in Ghent within the power line impact area.

The bald eagle is no longer on the  Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Species List however it is protected by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Power lines can destroy nesting habitat and are a major cause of death by electrocution and impact.

If you see a bald eagle please record the time, date and place and take a picture if you can and let us know.
