A-watching we will go…at home

According to the Pennsylvania Game Commission, three decades ago, the state of PA had only three bald eagle nests left. After extensive reintroduction efforts, Pennsylvania now hosts more than 250 nests. A documentary of this success can be viewed at the link in this column. The Delaware Highlands Conservancy and Eagle Institute also offer online an informative video titled, “How did the eagles return?” at delawarehighlands.org/eagles.
