Bald Eagles are flourishing, especially along the coast of Maine. They've been off the endangered list since 2007, but our national symbol remains protected from human harm and interference by federal law.

However, some people are questioning whether that protection should be lessened in light of the growing number of Bald Eagles that are preying upon other sea birds (not to mention free range chickens). 

Nonetheless, we suspect that most people who have had the thrill of seeing a magnificent Bald Eagle dive at close to 100 miles per hour want to keep that protection in place for a while. (Brooklin, Maine)
