Pete, A couple of years ago, I heard a lecture by Pete Nye who led the bald eagle recovery program in NY. His model has been adopted in most of the East Coast. Anyway, he said that some 30 years ago, there was only one nesting pair of eagles in NY and they were sterile. As a result of his hacking program using eaglets from Alaska, there are now over 1000 nesting pairs in the state, and in our location at the confluence of the Hudson and Mohawk rivers, eagles are an everyday thing. Amazing.
