Bald Eagles

OPB | Feb. 1, 1991 7:30 p.m.

Visit a winter roosting site for Bald Eagles located on the Oregon/California border. Harsh weather has provided the Eagles with a much anticipated food supply. Birds who have failed to migrate before the storm are now in a weakened, disadvantaged condition. Watch as Eagles scavenge the marshland for food, and learn why Ben Franklin thought the birds too lazy to be an appropriate symbol of the nation.

First Broadcast: 1990
