This work is dedicated to the memory of Thomas Hess, who devoted much of his career
to the Bald Eagles of Louisiana. His dedication and hard work have been a big influence on my
life and was a major factor in making this research possible. His life exemplified the meaning of
pursuing your dreams and living your passion. That passion he had for wildlife and Louisiana
touched so many lives and will live on in future generations of wildlife biologists and outdoor
enthusiasts to come.
