Over the past 12 years, the number of bald eagles in the continental United States has been soaring, according to a recent report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The number of bald eagles has grown from about 72,000 in 2009 to more than 316,000. Just 50 years ago, America’s national bird was on the brink of extinction. News4’s Mark Segraves reports. (Media provided courtesy of American Eagle Foundation and HDOnTap)
