Bald Eagle Returns to Philadelphia after 200 Years
"They have eggs in the nest and you can tell they are incubating by their behavior."
- Doug Gross, endangered bird specialist
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - America's national emblem is nesting in Philadelphia for the first time in more than 200 years but it may be on a collision course with developers.
A pair of bald eagles, a species that has recovered from the brink of extinction in the last 40 years, has built a nest in a former Navy yard on the south side of Philadelphia, the sixth-largest U.S. city and where the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were written.
