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.
