Bald Eagle Population In Massachusetts Continues To Grow



           The number of bald eagles nesting in Massachusetts has been soaring in the last several years.

     It is a remarkable comeback for our national symbol. 

    The bird disappeared from Massachusetts just after the turn of the 20th century.  A state program began in the early 1980s to restore the bald eagle population.

     WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with MassWildlife ornithologist Andrew Vitz.
