New Jersey Eagle Population Is Up!

The Conserve Wildlife Foundation reports: "A total of 111 eagle pairs were monitored. Of these, 95 were active — which means that they laid eggs.  Seventy-one of these were successful in producing the 118 fledges.  This is especially good news after 2010′s less than stellar nesting season where only 69 young chicks fledged."

Next Wednesday: ‘Birds of the Meadowlands’ Talk
