Bald Eagles Make a Comeback in the Islands Off California

After the long disappearance of the bald eagles from the islands in the 1960s, it is finally a comeback- officials have recently stated that these eagles have expanded their range in the Channel islands off the coast of California.

A nesting pair was recently found on the San Clemente island for the first time after almost 5 decades. It is presumed that the disappearance of these bald eagles was mainly due to the use of an insecticide called DDT, which caused thinning of the egg shells of these eagles.

Around 16 breeding pairs of these bald eagles are now added to the existing population of 60 birds living on the island. This new discovery seems to have highlighted the fact that these bald eagles have re-established their territories on 5 of the 8 islands in the area, and will hopefully be a part of all the 8 islands soon.

61 chicks have been released on the northern Channel islands as quoted by the officials, which is a part of the bald eagle re-establishment effort than started in the year 2002.

Following 4 years of breeding in captivity, the first chick has now hatched naturally for the first time in 50 years.

The US Fish and Wildlife service, who were breeding these bald eagles in another environment, claim that they will now no longer breed these birds in captivity, now that they have started hatching successfully.

“We’re just going to let nature take its course,” Jane Hendron, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, explained.
