Conservationists aren’t giving up their fight to keep the Sonoran Desert Bald Eagle on the Endangered Species List.

The Center for Biological Diversity and the Maricopa Audubon Society have filed a notice of their intent to sue the federal government. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service delisted the bird for the third time in May.

In April the federal government took the Sonoran Desert Bald Eagle off the endangered species list. And that’s caused deep concern from people who love this bird in the southwest.

On a recent sunny morning Arizona Game and Fish biologist Kyle McCarty climbed to the top of a tall Ponderosa pine tree and into a bald eagle nest.
