For the past two years I've invested a considerable amount of time in observing and photographing a pair of American bald eagles -- and their offspring -- who chose a sycamore grove on the north side of Greenfield, Indiana, as their home. According to the local newspaper, this is the first recorded pair of nesting eagles in Hancock County in over 100 years. They've attracted a strong following of more than 4,000 followers on Facebook.
So I've chosen 14 of my best photos of the eagles, all taken during 2016, to create an inspirational and patriotic 2017 calendar of these majestic raptors, including the photo displayed above, shot in June. These are high quality photos printed on high quality glossy paper and bound with a spiral binder (available in your choice of five colors), available in two sizes: 8.5 x 11 or 11 x 14. Wait until you see the incredible photo of one of the juveniles -- at just 13 weeks of age -- on the July calendar!

I am donating 25% of the profits to the Hancock County Arts Council, who has generously supported the efforts of about half-a-dozen Greenfield area photographers in capturing photos of these magnificent birds of prey. There's not a greater symbol of America than the bald eagle, IMO.
