As he majestically moved across the ridge, he was highlighted not only in my sight, but also in my mind. In all my years of living in the Big Bear Valley, this was my first glimpse of a wild bald eagle, but it was only the beginning of some unusual and spectacular sightings.
Bald eagles are enormous birds. Weighing up to fourteen pounds, with a wingspan of six to seven feet, there birds roost on snags or dead-topped trees. Their sheer size requires tremendous energy and space for takeoff and landing. Treetop perches provide the birds with roosting spots and favorable hunting views. They react to the slightest disturbances and can see the smallest speck in full and clear detail. Eagles are highly attuned to receive information and are sensitive to their surroundings..."
