Massachusetts' Bald Eagle Population Is On The Rise

CAPE COD, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A Bald Eagle's nest with eggs has been found for the first time in about a century in Barnstable.

Marion Larson, who works with MassWildlife, said they have been looking for nests, which have also been found Wareham and Martha's Vineyard.

"We have documented for the first time nests with eggs and chicks, we have been looking for viable nests on the Cape as part of our Spring nesting survey," Larson said. "We did get reports of those two new nests, along with seven others that were newly documented this Spring across the state.

The last time an Eagle's nest was found on the Cape was 1905.
