Bald Eagles Return To San Clement Island

The Sacramento Bee reported that there is a pair of nesting Bald Eagles on San Clemente Island for the first time in more than 50 years,This means bald eagles have now  re-established territories on five of the eight Channel islands. It is predicted that they will return to all eight islands within a few years. Bald eagles had disappeared from the Channel Islands during the 1960’s primarily due to DDT use. The Eagles initial return was assisted by a captive breeding period which has now been discontinued as the eagles are successfully breeding on their own.
