America's oldest bald eagle found dead in New York

3 posts in this topic

ROCHESTER, N.Y., June 17 (UPI) -- The oldest known bald eagle in the United States was found dead early this month in western New York, near Rochester. It was reportedly hit by a car.

The bird was 38, besting the previous longevity record by five years -- a sign eagle conservation efforts may be paying off.

 

"This record eagle is a testament to the diligent conservation and restoration work done under New York's Bald Eagle Restoration Program," Marc Gerstman, executive deputy commissioner of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, said in a press release.

"It's truly noteworthy that this eagle lived a long life and thrived in New York, returning to his New York nest site to continue breeding," Gerstman added. "DEC's work to conserve habitat and ensure clean air and clean water for bald eagles and many of the other fish and wildlife is ongoing, including participation in many research programs to ensure these species continue to thrive in New York State."
