Nature: American Eagle
Wednesday, May 28 at 8:00 p.m.
Everything about them is big.
Their wings can span eight feet. Their nests weigh up to a ton. They can fly with a deer fawn in their talons.
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. Photographed by Emmy-winning cinematographer Neil Rettig, "Nature: American Eagle” tells the story of a year in the lives of these majestic raptors on a breathtaking stretch of the Mississippi.
The latest in camera technologies will give viewers unprecedented high-definition access into the nests – and into the skies – with these majestic birds.
