Bald Eagles-Lake Mead
A bald eagle takes off from the shoreline of the Overton Arm of Lake Mead Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2014. An annual survey along lakes Mead and Mohave counted 132 of the birds of prey from just north of Laughlin, Nev. to the mouth of the Virgin River. That’s 31 fewer eagles than last year at this time, but it still represents the fifth-highest total since the winter counts began in 1991. (AP Photo/Las Vegas Review-Journal, John Locher)
