Eagles Return to Wachusett Reservoir

The resurgence of the bald eagle population in the northeast continues. Today's Boston Globe has a photo gallery showing the nest built by the first pair ever to nest along the Wachusett Reservoir in Central Massachusetts.

They banded a baby eaglet from the nest so it can be tracked.

The eaglet received two new bands, an aluminum US Fish and Wildlife Service band and a colored Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife band.
