Richard Gwin's Bald Eagles in Lawrence

Journal-World senior photographer Richard Gwin has been taking pictures of Lawrence's burgeoning bald eagle community for nearly a decade. As the bald eagles hatch another batch of chicks, take a look back at some of his best pictures from today and the past decade.

A pair of bald eagles living north of Lawrence recently welcomed two hatchlings. On Memorial Day, the parents took the first hatchling to a nearby tree used by the adults as the young one tested its wings in the stiff breeze. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is due to re-examine as early as June whether the birds should remain on the endangered species list.
