Santa Cruz Island Is All Agog

In what is described as a Blessed event for wildlife biologists a pair of bald eagles hatched a chick on Santa Cruz Island for the first time in 50 years. The successful breeding marked a significant milestone in the four-year effort to reintroduce the eagles to the island. Bald Eagles disappeared off the coast of California the 1960s as DDT polluted their food chain.

This indeed is heartwarming news for wildlife enthusiasists

Indeed, more good news! Coming from the Pacific Northwest, bald eagles were a beautiful blessing around our waterways. I loved watching the young eagles trying out their wings!
