Bald Eagle on ZZ

Bald Eagle on ZZ

When I (Kimberly) was little, I remember Bald Eagle sightings being a big deal. Anytime my dad spotted one on a road trip, he was sure to point it out. Talk about eagle eyes…most of the time I couldn’t even find it.

When I moved back to Door County in 2016, I started seeing them everywhere. The one shown here nearly kamikazed into the side of my truck after flying off a road kill raccoon as I passed by.

The state and county have taken note of this comeback too. The DNR hosted a contest in 2015 for photographers, and the Peninsula Pulse has a guide to the recent boost in Bald Eagle birdwatching and ecology.

And check out this slideshow of photos on the DNR website – much better quality than my faraway shot.
