Bald Eagles Thriving In Kansas

KSAL StaffJuly 2, 2014

Wildlife experts say bald eagles are thriving in Kansas this year, and they expect the trend to continue.

District wildlife biologist Charlie Cope says there are between 84 and 90 actives eagle nests in the Kansas this year.

One closely watched pair lives at Harbor Isle, an upscale housing area in Wichita.

For the fifth year in a row the eagles failed to produce offspring this year. Observers said they saw one of the eagles in an “incubating position” once but no egg hatched. A storm on June 12 blew their nest out of the tree.

The pair was first spotted in the Wichita area in 2009. Naturalist Bob Gress says it’s unclear why the birds have been unsuccessful in mating.
