Spotlight: Eagles of Seely Lake, Montana
Craig Ronzone captures bald eagle images nearly everyday from his home in western Montana, where he lives north of Missoula, and south of Glacier National Park. He writes, "They hunt, fly by, and sit in the trees in my yard in view of my house. We see the eagles all year and are involved in preserving and protecting eagle habitat."
