Born in the USA: New Generations of our National Bird Growing Up on the American River
by Susan Maxwelll Skinner
Did you know: Bald eagle parents have a miraculous system of recruiting babysitters to tend their fledglings so that, after a hectic child-rearing season, mum and dad can have a carefree vacation together.
I have continued a "nature blog" that follows the progress of a male and female who raised two chicks in 2017 and another two, this year. The growth of these babies has been well recorded by daily observations and photographs. Bald eagles are beautiful in the first place; to have their movements echoed photographed by an award-winning photographer is something I hope will make the presentation memorable.
Susan "eagle woman" Maxwell Skinner is a Sacramento photojournalist. Her photography and written observations of bald eagles on the American River have been in the news for several years; she also has a huge international following at "American River Nature Blog" on Facebook. Susan also writes for Arden and Carmichael community newspapers and sings in the John Skinner Band. Her interests include most of nature's creatures and the photojournalist has a particular love for recording family interactions between many species of birds -- large and small! For her presentation, Susan will share her pictures and experiences with nature on the American River. Check out Susan's blog at www.facebook.com/Susan-Maxwell-Skinner-1543823865927571/
