Waterfront perch

A bald eagle perches on a dock near Sunrise Lane in Holmes Beach. The bird of prey — and the national symbol — was once facing extinction, but is no longer on the endangered or threatened species lists and can be found throughout most of the continent. Audubon Society volunteers monitor a number of bald eagle nests in the area. Islander Photo: Courtesy Tina Howe
