Bald eagles, Eaglets Found Nesting In Arms Of Arizona Saguaro For First Time In Decades
The Arizona Game and Fish Department says it has spotted bald eagles nesting in a saguaro cactus for the first time in several decades.
Wildlife managers say they found a pair of eagles and their eaglets in the arms of a large saguaro during a recent eagle survey. The agency’s coordinator of raptor management says the eagles are on a cactus near a central Arizona reservoir. He called the find “amazing.”
Wildlife biologists have looked for decades for a sighting of bald eagles nesting in the Arizona saguaro.
Officials say the last known mention of such a site in Arizona was recorded in 1937.
