Watch a sneak peek of American Eagle — Coming to NATURE Fall 2008: Photographed by three-time Emmy Award winning filmmaker Neil Rettig, American Eagle is the first HD hour on bald eagles ever. It’s an unprecedented look at nature’s fearsome beauties with never before filmed eagle behavior. Unique to North America, the bald eagle is the continent’s most recognizable aerial predator, with a shocking white head, electric yellow beak, and penetrating eyes. In the 1960s, this symbol of the United States became an emblem of environmental degradation as the pesticide DDT and other human factors brought it to the brink of extinction. But now, following its protection, and ultimately its delisting as an endangered species, the bald eagle has come roaring back!
