5 Books that Feature Eagles

I had the most challenging time photographing bald eagles for BACK FROM THE BRINK: Saving Animals From Extinction. Everywhere I went I saw eagles  -- when I DIDN'T have my camera equipment. They seemed to be playing with me as they flew over my car time after time. Finally, I did observe and photograph them in Florida and New York State.

Here are five titles that feature our national bird and one of my final photos.
