Coming Sunday in Bay Area News Group newspapers — A special photo essay centerpiece on bald eagles by BANG staff photographer Aric Crabb

The bald eagle is an American success story. After four decades of being on the endangered species list, the population recovered to the point where it was delisted in 2007. It’s now estimated that 200 pairs of nesting bald eagles live throughout California, with 9,789 pairs in the lower 48 states.

Each winter, 500 or more bald eagles converge in the Klamath basin, resulting in the largest gathering of the species in the continental U.S. With the eagles come hundreds of bird watchers to see the show.

Look for Aric’s beautiful photographs in your Sunday BANG newspaper, and enjoy. (You can also view a slideshow of Aric’s bald eagle photos on Sunday at http://www.contracostatimes.com /Gary
