LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) - A Lufkin woman has discovered the magnificence of the US national bird at a Lufkin park.

Allison Maxwell said she took the photos of the bird at the Ellen Trout Park, near the pond.

The eagle pair has at least one eaglet in the nest.

Eagle sightings have picked up around East Texas in recent years, following the federal government's attempts to protect the species over the last 50 years, according to baldeagleinfo.com.

According to Ellen Trout Zoo Director Gordon Henley, the eagles have made Lufkin their winter home since 2007 and lay a nest every year.
