Great news!

And people think I’m not a conservationist

“I think the bald eagle is probably the single biggest success story around the Endangered Species Act,” said Sue Cass, who heads the winter raptor survey for the Boulder County Nature Association.

The federal government seems to agree. On Friday, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is expected to officially remove bald eagles from the “threatened” list protected under the Endangered Species Act.

Excellent!! Having seen a bald eagle up close, I can tell you they are a magnificent bird.   Now maybe we can save some humans in Africa by loosening up that DDT ban just a bit.
