This American Eagle, one of a mating pair, was recently photographed not far from my home. He and his mate were busily building a nest in anticipation of the coming spring.

Nesting American Eagle

A great deal of conservation work has been done along the Front Range of Colorado to support the raptor population here. This amazing photo was taken by my friend, Woody Green.

Happy Save the Eagles Day!
