We see a lot of American bald eagles on the shore of Lake Michigan.  Eagles are at the top of the food chain so their return to our shores means that economic poisons such as DDT have purged from the ecosystem since these pesticides were banned.

Eagles are an indicator species and their return  indicates a healthier environment for all species.

This is my watercolor of an eagle as it stoops for prey.
