Photo of the Week: Almost Home

A bald eagle takes flight into the bright blue sky after being released from a handler.

Caledon State Park, Virginia, is a popular place to release eagles after rehabilitation from injury. Belle Isle, York River, and Westmoreland State Parks are also popular release sites in Virginia, but this lady was happy to be returned to her old territory.

The Chesapeake Bay has the highest concentration of bald eagles east of the Mississippi River. They depend on healthy fish populations and a wide choice of forest trees abutting waterways for breeding and nesting success. As our national symbol, we owe them the debt of attending to these simple needs. It benefits everyone, and the positive effects of these efforts ripple out to help a host of other species. The Bay is ours to care for.
