Connecticut environmental officials are reopening the Windsor Locks Canal State Park Trail after shutting it for a few months to protect two young bald eagles.

The Department of Environmental Protection says the eagles have successfully fledged and will test their new flying abilities along the Connecticut River this weekend.

Environmental officials say nesting bald eagles were once in decline due to pesticides and returned to Connecticut in 1992 after an absence of nearly 50 years.

Twenty-three bald eagle pairs were documented in the state this year and 21 pairs made nests. Three of the 21 nests failed, and the 18 successful bald eagle pairs have fledged 29 chicks.

The trail is set to reopen Friday.

In 1983, there were only three bald eagle nests in the entire state of Pennsylvania, but an assessment by the state’s the Game Commission shows that number has surpassed a milestone of 200 active nests this year.

Pair of injured eagles prove to be lovebirds
Reunited raptors re-establish bond

They are the fiercest-looking lovebirds you'll ever see, and they demonstrate their bond by eating dead rats side by side, wings touching.

The two seriously injured bald eagles, found two months apart and more than a mile away from each other near the Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge, were rescued and reunited in a wildlife rehabilitation facility in Medina last week.

'The eagle couldn't have picked a better person'


Click on image to download

credit Ed Glick

It was a crow that first caught Frank Glick's attention. It was flying around erratically, so Glick got out his Nikon camera and followed it. It was around 6 a.m. on a hazy spring day and he was driving through Fort Snelling National Cemetery because he was early for a training meeting at Delta Airlines, where he works.

Glick is an amateur photographer, but he always carries his camera, just in case. So he followed the crow, in some cultures a symbol of good luck and magic, until he saw it: a huge eagle perched on a tombstone, its eyes alert, its head craned, looking for prey. In the foreground, dew glistened on the grass.

Glick got his shot.

Article from July 28

Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife biologist Kendall Marden says the eagles failed to produce young for two years, but this year has hatched four eaglets at the Swan Island Wildlife Management Area near Richmond.

Marden, who manages Swan Island, says it's a "new milestone for eagle recovery in Maine." Marden says there are believed to have been only three other documented cases of four eaglets in a single nest in the U.S.

Forty years ago, the majestic birds had been nearly wiped out by exposure to the pesticide DDT and other stresses. In 2007, the bald eagle was taken off Maine's list of threatened and endangered species, and there are now more than 500 nesting pairs in the state.?

Marden says the newly discovered eaglet quads will spend the next several weeks learning to fly and feed on their own. If they succeed, their chances of surviving their first year reaches 75 percent. Eaglets who make it to age three have a 95 percent chance of survival, he says.

I came across several YouTube videos today concerning lead poisening in bald eagles. To me it's a very important and concerning topic.
