EAGLES OF NEW ENGLAND

EAGLES OF NEW ENGLAND (Natural History Series) – Friday December 11, 7 pm


Join Connecticut D.E.E.P.Wildlife biologist, Brain Hess who will share extensive knowledge and photographs during this program on bald eagles.

Best known as the national emblem of the United States, bald eagles have made a huge comeback in New England after a precipitous decline due to loss of habitat and nesting trees, food contamination by pesticides (DDT), and illegal shooting.

Due to the increase in nesting pairs in recent years, the bald eagle’s status was reclassified in Connecticut from endangered to threaten. Winter is a difficult time for any wildlife species, including bald eagles. Food is harder to find and cold temperatures cause energy stress. Come and learn why it’s important to stay away from nesting areas and to avoid disturbing the birds. The Wildlife Division participates in a midwinter eagle survey in January for the United States Geological Survey; volunteers are always welcome to help!


This Natural History Series is dedicated to the memory of Noble S. Proctor, Ph.D.

FREE; please pre-register 203 736-1053
