Endangered no longer
The bald eagles we all enjoy along the Hudson River in the winter and their brethren across the country are no longer on the federal government’s endangered species list. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service made its announcement today.
The Bald Eagle Protection Act, though, still makes it illegal to kill or disturb bald eagles.
Check out NPR’s report on the delisting, which comes with audio.
Then there was my colleague Greg Clary’s post from earlier in the week.
TJN photographer Joe Larese spied the eagle to the left on the ice of Annsville Creek in Peekskill in 2005.
