ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Bald eagles have made a remarkable recovery across the United States since the pesticide DDT was banned 45 years ago, but the majestic birds are still dying from another environmental poison: lead from bullets and shotgun pellets in wildlife carcasses left behind by hunters.In New York, which has been a leader in the bald eagle restoration in the Northeast for four decades, state wildlife researchers have documented a growing number of eagle deaths from lead poisoning in recent years.In New York, lead poisoning was confirmed as the cause of death in 38 of 336 bald eagles brought to a Department of Environmental Conservation lab near Albany between 2000 and 2015, said state wildlife biologist Kevin Hynes, who does the necropsies."Eagles are doing very well, their recovery is a great success story largely supported by excise taxes paid by hunters" on lead ammunition and guns, said Lawrence Keane, senior vice president of the National Shooting Sports Association.Virginia wildlife advocate Clark said that rather than a ban on lead ammunition, his group is seeking a public education campaign so hunters are aware of the problem and how they can help.

By Larry Stumes - Sunday Jul 2, 2017
[...] Song From Above had nine weeks between her 1-length debut win against male opponents April 29 and her 3-length triumph over fellow fillies Saturday.Two of the workouts were at 6 furlongs — a 16th of a mile longer than the 5½-furlong Juan Gonzalez Memorial — so Specht and jockey Frank Alvarado knew she was plenty fit.[...] Song From Above proved she’s a talented filly Saturday with a nice inside move past the leaders to take command in early stretch.Earlier on Saturday’s program, Senorita stretched her winning streak to eight with a front-running victory by 1¼ lengths in the $5,800 Black Ruby Stakes for mules. …Among his opponents in the 6-furlong Independence Day feature are Grade 3 winner Rocket Heat, who returned from a layoff to set the pace and finish third in the Albany Stakes on June 10 at Golden Gate Fields, and Yahoo Tahoe, who rallied to win two straight $40,000 claimers.
