Artist's Description

Bald Eagle – Haliaeetus leucocephalus – Taken on the middle Bitterroot River, Montana, USA. A pair of bald eagles in a snag. There is a nest near by and I assume they are hunting for fish. This is a classic pose. Thank goodness the numbers are steady years after a decline due to DDT use in our farmlands. During the 1950s and 1960s the use of pesticides, especially DDT, became a major problem. DDT residues accumulated in fish, a major food source of eagles. The residues then accumulated in the eagles that ate the fish and subsequently caused a thinning of eggshells. DDT is now banned in the United States. Formerly Endangered, they are now delisted in Montana but are a Special Status Species
