In coordination with the Army Corps of Engineers and the Fish and Wildlife Service, several hatching seasons were spent climbing 40-90 feet up into large Eagle nests to aid in the study and research of the American Bald Eagle when they were still endangered.


 The goal is to first travel to the nest; most of the time by boat. Then safely climb up to, and get into the nest; without having a seven week old eaglet walk off the far edge.  After securing a safety line, I would then carefully capture the eaglet, put it into a cloth bag, lower them one at a time to the biologists.  They  take measurements, weights, and notes.  Within a few minutes they are raised back to the tree top, and carefully released back into the nest.  The next step is for me to climb out of the nest and descend the tree, removing safety equipment on the way down.

the sky.... but its also down.

there was a young lady named bright,

who coud travel much faster than light,

she set out one day in a relative way,

and arrived the preceeding night.

A happy soul is the best shield for the cruel world of people
