Image: 40 Years from the Brink of Extinction: America's Bald Eagle, by John D. Chaney (Author). Publisher: Farcountry Press (January 1, 2016)Save the Eagles Day
-- Eagles were once in extinction in the later part of 20th Century, but as on June 2007, the Bald Eagle - the national bird of the United States, was removed from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife, due to the assiduous work of scientists and good stewards of both public and private lands. There are more than 70 species of eagles throughout the world; except Hawaii, where the bird never resided. Other species of birds are not so fortunate as the Bald Eagle because of the threat caused due to habitat loss, poaching, and pesticides. Source
Read: 40 Years from the Brink of Extinction: America's Bald Eagle
-- American bald eagles and their fight for survival ignited passion in award-winning photographer John D. Chaney. He began documenting America's national bird for future generations when he learned in college the bald eagle might become extinct. A few years later in 1976, the bald eagle was added to the Endangered Species list. His passion grew year after year as he captured more interesting photographs and finally witnessed first-hand the resurgence of our symbol of freedom. Chaney's images in 40 Years from the Brink of Extinction pay tribute to the eagles' survival and the people who helped them. This large-format hardcover features 63 beautiful photographs of the majestic eagles in their natural habitat, interspersed with interesting facts he learned on his journey.

National Bittersweet Chocolate Day
- Bittersweet chocolate has at least 35% chocolate liquor. Some people use the word semi-sweet chocolate for bittersweet chocolate as semisweet can have up to 35% chocolate liquor. However, a bar of high-quality bittersweet chocolate can contain at least 60% chocolate liquor. When this is compared with semi-sweet chocolate, there is a difference in taste.
Peculiar People Day
