From a very young age I loved all animals. I grew up having pets and continue to enjoy my time with them today. I saw my very first Bald Eagle back in 2016 during a family vacation to Alaska. Immediately, I become infatuated with these birds as I looked up from the boat and saw the sky filled with eagles swooping down to the water and catching fish. In February of 2018, my mom and I learned about the Centerport Eagles. We had no idea they came anywhere near New York. Since then, I’ve spent most days watching these eagles grow families, build their nests, and hunt for food. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to learn about these unique birds and to see them up close in person.
