A bald eagle spends the first minutes of the day, perched on a piece of driftwood, peering out over the Straight of Juan de Fuca. After quite some time surveying the shoreline, the eagle takes flight just after sunrise on San Juan Island.
Bald eagles represent one of the most successful conservation campaigns in United States history. In just three decades, bald eagle populations have rebounded and they have now been removed from the list of endangered and threatened wildlife.
