Bald Eagle Nest – Week Eight – Part One

There were no real interesting shots taken during the hour that I spent at the nest in week seven.  So, let’s skip to week eight, where I found the birds to be more active.

The first two shots were taken from the other side of the river.

Nesting Birds of Missouri – Cerulean Warbler

Did you know…?

The Cerulean Warbler population has declined more than 80% since breeding bird surveys began in 1966?  Habitat destruction, in the form of mountaintop removal and stream filling in the Appalachians, and forest destruction for agriculture in the Mississippi Alluvial Valley, along with wintering grounds destruction for coffee and cocoa production in South America are responsible.  Habitat preservation via cessation of deforestation in both nesting grounds and wintering forests are crucial if we are to continue hearing the Cerulean song.
