Guessing this one to be around 13 inches long and around six and a half wide...It was pretty wide for the length and I think this one is a five toed track. Pretty wide muddy area and I think this animal was hopping or jumping because it was the only one found..looked like from the deeper part being on the instep it gave a pretty good push. We had rain last weekend and dry as a bone before then so I think it was made sometime between Sunday morning and yesterday. We had rain again most of the night last night and it for sure had been rained in... LOL, we get into all kinds of critters here in these Mountains.. Kathy took this picture on her way home from work today..

Great picture of our National bird...looks like you both found and took pictures of something unique...

A little "did you know" about the bald eagle which is really not bald but back in the day bald meant white...

On June 28, 2007 the Interior Department took the American bald eagle off the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants...

I'm hoping people won't harm them now or try to destroy the area where they are nesting for home development. Venice has a Bald Eagle couple that have their nest on one of the towers at the airport at the end of the street. They have been there for years.
They certainly are a beautiful bird.

If someone did and got caught...the punishment/penalty certainly out weighs the bird...

Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act...



The bald eagle will continue to be protected by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act even though it has been delisted under the Endangered Species Act. This law, originally passed in 1940, provides for the protection of the bald eagle and the golden eagle (as amended in 1962) by prohibiting the take, possession, sale, purchase, barter, offer to sell, purchase or barter, transport, export or import, of any bald or golden eagle, alive or dead, including any part, nest, or egg, unless allowed by permit (16 U.S.C. 668(a); 50 CFR 22). "Take" includes pursue, shoot, shoot at, poison, wound, kill, capture, trap, collect, molest or disturb (16 U.S.C. 668c; 50 CFR 22.3). The 1972 amendments increased civil penalties for violating provisions of the Act to a maximum fine of $5,000 or one year imprisonment with $10,000 or not more than two years in prison for a second conviction. Felony convictions carry a maximum fine of $250,000 or two years of imprisonment. The fine doubles for an organization. Rewards are provided for information leading to arrest and conviction for violation of the Act.
