If you've ever seen an eagle fly gracefully over an unbroken forest or watched it snatch a fish from the surface of a crystal-clear lake, you probably experienced a feeling of inspiration. Award-winning author, naturalist, and wildlife photographer Stan Tekiela believes that eagles are the most majestic of birds. He spent years studying bald eagles, noting their behaviours and capturing them in photographs. Stan's research spanned major events such as migration and courtship, as well as everyday activities including feeding and sleeping.
The result is a striking portrayal of these amazing raptors in Bald Eagles. Stan's extraordinary photographs depict the birds of prey in a new, unique fashion. His fascinating text, drawn from detailed research and personal observations, provides information about every aspect of the eagles' lives. Presented with headings and short paragraphs, the coffee-table book is pleasurable to browse and easy to read.
"My sentiment for this bird of prey runs deep," says Stan. "I'm sure you feel the same. Because of this widespread affection toward our national symbol, I am confident the future of the eagle will stay as bright as our nation and as wonderful as the people who care for this bird."
Bald Eagles is a must-have for bird watchers, raptor enthusiasts, and nature lovers.
