feature gallery birds of prey - observation & conservation

There is nothing more breath-taking than discovering a nesting pair of Bald Eagle - a fascinating bird that was on the brink of extinction only a short time ago. This featured gallery from Justin Pursell boasts some amazing images of this commanding bird in its natural habitat.

Justin has aided in the conservation of these incredible birds through communication with the U.S. Geological Survey, Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey and Osprey-Watch/Center for Conservation Biology.

In addition to the Bald Eagle, the gallery features the Osprey, Turkey Buzzard, Red-tailed Hawk, Sharp Shinned Hawk and Cooper's Hawk.

usgs certificate of appreciation

Justin was awarded by the US Geological Survey with this certificate in April 2013 for reporting a successful Bald Eagle nest with a mated pair of adults. By using a Sigma 150-500mm lens, Justin was able to capture high resolution photos of the Eagles and trace their bands back to the original bander, Kathleen Clark. The birds were originally from New Jersey and migrated to Pennsylvania where they crafted a mammoth 10-foot wide nest.
