Vt. bald eagle revival takes hold with 26 young

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife says bald eagles successfully raised 26 young in the state this season.

That number is up from 24 last year.

Vermont was the last state in the continental United States to report breeding populations of bald eagles after the species was brought back from the brink of extinction.

Eagles were pushed out of Vermont in the 1940s after the pesticide DDT wiped out the population.

Between 2004 and 2006, biologists brought dozens of birds to the state and raised them in hopes they would return to the state as adults and reproduce.
