Bald Eaglets

In this picture from the November 1992 issue, a pair of Southern American bald eaglets await food at the George Miksch Sutton Avian Research Center in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Thanks in part to the work done by the center, bald eagles went from being an endangered species to one of "least concern" in the early 2000s.
