Bald Eagles Make Strong Comeback Along Mississippi

It is great to see that bald eagles, who were nearing extinction, have made a strong comeback along the Mississippi River here in Northern Minnesota.

I don't know if I quite agree with this story that I can see a bald eagle every day here in Minneapolis, but I can say that seeing an eagle is not as rare as it once was, even a few years ago.

We first started seeing them more frequently further north when Nordic skiing in Northern Wisconsin at the American Birkebeiner ski race and I saw my first swarm of them fishing over an area of the Mississippi River south of La Crosse, Wisconsin two winters ago. This story titled, Bald Eagles Make Strong Comeback Along Mississippi, from WCCO CBS Minnesota is a nice read.
