Great post about the Eagles of the Santa Barbara Channel Islands.
In 2010, thanks to restoration efforts and years of hard work and patience by conservationists, a record 15 bald eaglets hatched on the Santa Barbara Channel Islands. This milestone event included two chicks on Santa Rosa Island which was the first time in 60 years this was known to have happened.
Last year 14 chicks hatched on the islands including the first eaglet born on Anacapa Island in 63 years.
