This video was taken by Keith Hadsall and Traci Hermes on March 13 on River Beach Drive in Rome, IL. They said, :These same 2 eagles have been in this tree every day for the past week. We think they are a breeding couple, and the eagle that is higher up in the tree is most likely the female. female bald eagles are generally older, and larger, than the males."
Now the birds and the plane are grounded in Alabama while the Federal Aviation Administration investigates whether the journey violates regulations because the pilot was being paid by a conservation group to lead the cranes on their first migration instead of working for free. STORY & COMMENTS
