How many breeding pairs of bald eagles are there expected to be in California?



  1. 0 Votes

    The California department of fish and game does not have data on breeding populations on their website for the last decade, but they do have the trend from 1977 to 1999.  In 1977 there were just over 30 occupied breeding territories with a steady increase to over 150 in 1999.  The bald eagle has been making a great comeback, and was taken off the endangered species list in 2007. 

    In terms of nation wide numbers, there were 417 breeding pairs in 1963, but when it was taken off the endangered list, there were 9,789 pairs reported in the lower 48 states.
