INDIAN HEAD, Md. (March 4, 2010) The electrical distribution system at Naval Support Facility Indian Head, Md., is retrofitted with flight diverters on utility lines, plastic phase covers and fiberglass cross arms to prevent mortalities of the bald eagle population on the base. Environmental specialists from the base recorded 13 bald eagle deaths from 2001 to 2005 and attributed 11 deaths directly to electrocutions and line-strikes. The effort is part of an initiative designed to keep the habitat safe for raptors. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class R. Jason Brunson)
