Arizona set two records this year for the number of identified bald-eagle breeding areas and the number of bald-eagle eggs laid, wildlife officials say.

Sixty-six breeding areas were identified, including four new ones, they say. And at least 80 bald-eagle eggs were laid.

The numbers show that bald eagles are flourishing in Arizona, officials say.

Bald eagles were removed from protection under the Endangered Species Act in 2007.
