Eagle Population on the Rise

A bald eagle flies through the sky above Jamestown Island near the Historic Jamestowne Museum Thursday morning. Bald eagles along the James River have gone from a population of zero in the '70s, ravaged by DDT, Kepone and PCBs, to more than 220 nesting pairs today, representing what one expert calls "the best example of bald eagle recovery in the nation" and the highest concentration along the river in recorded history.
