Bald Eagle in Flight

Bald Eagle in Flight at Abinger Common Fete. A powerful and impressive bird of prey indeed. The species was on the brink of extirpation in the continental United States (while flourishing in much of Alaska and Canada) late in the 20th century, but now has a stable population and has been officially removed from the U.S. federal government's list of endangered species.
