About an hour before I sat down to write this week’s column, I was standing on the banks of the Overpeck in Ridgefield watching a pair of nesting Bald Eagles preparing to once again bring forth the next generation of the nation’s symbol into the world .
A truly magnificent thing to see, but one I never dreamed I would ever be able to witness , especially here in one of the most densely populated places in the nation. Yet they are here , back from the brink of extinction for everyone to see and witness. The Bald Eagle has returned.
