Nesting Eagles

Two bald eagles look from their nest 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.
