In the spring of 2015, the oldest known bald eagle was recovered dead as a road kill. It was one of the first bald eagles released in the reintroduction program conducted by the state Department of Environmental Conservation.
George Steele worked on the hacking team that worked with that bird. Join him as he tells the story of the decline and reestablishment of the bald eagle in those early years through a slide illustrated presentation at the next Hudson Mohawk Bird Club meeting Monday, Feb. 6, at 7 p.m.
