A familiar sight along Iron County roadways, streams and woodlots is the American bald eagle. The outbreak of a mysterious disease killing eagles in Utah has created concern over the welfare of the eagle population in other states. There are approximately 11,000 breeding pairs of eagles in the lower 48 states. Michigan has an estimated 500 pairs. Wisconsin and Minnesota each have more than double that amount, topping the charts for highest populations. Bald eagles have 7,000 feathers and a wingspan of 72 to 90 inches. (Kevin Zini photo)
