Officials: Records set for bald eagles in Arizona
PHOENIX -- Wildlife officials said Arizona set two records this year for the number of identified bald-eagle breeding areas and the number of bald-eagle eggs laid.
They said 66 breeding areas were identified, including four new ones.
At least 80 bald eagle eggs were laid.
Officials said the numbers show that bald eagles are flourishing in the state.
Bald eagles were removed from protection under the Endangered Species Act in 2011.
