Bald eagles are making a comeback in Massachusetts, though spotting one in the Bay State is still quite rare. A record 102 birds were spotted in Massachusetts in a 2011 survey. That’s the largest number in more than thirty years of record-keeping.

Back in 1979, just seven bald eagles were spotted in the annual survey.

The bald eagle was taken off the federal list of endangered and threatened species in 2007.

    There was one (1) Bald Eagle spotted on the ground on Rt 27 in Natick a few hundred yards from Rt 9 a few months ago foraging for food. I didn’t personally witness it, but it was in the News.
