Description"One of you boys will continue radio-tracking bears, and the other will start climbing trees to band bald eagle nestlings ... " That's how it all began for me back in the summer of 1967, on the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska, my first summer job in the wildlife field. And as it turned out, that inauspicious beginning has led to a fascinating, sometimes adventure-some, 43-year odyssey of watching, studying, and enjoying bald eagles throughout much of their North American range.
