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.
