Bald Eagle on TV

We saw a wonderful TV program on the Bald Eagle last night, part of the Nature TV series on PBS. It will be repeated during the week, so check your local PBS stations for the time.
It was titled, American Eagle and featured the lives and behavior of several Bald Eagle nesting pairs in the Upper Mississippi River Valley. Excellent and compelling footage of eagles courting, nest-building, family life, sibling rivalry, catching prey, flight antics, etc. Having had our own PBS TV (Stokes Birds At Home) show for several years, for which we were the videographers, we appreciate the skill, time and effort it took to get such magnificent video of the eagles.
You can see a preview of the eagle TV show here.

That was a really cool program. I live about an hour from Prairie Du Chien where the program was filmed so it was fun guessing exactly where each scene was.
I remember watching the eagle nest at the fish hatchery and watching the eagles raise their young.
Had no idea it was going to turn up on TV though!
