Bald eagles flying high

This bald eagle was spotted last weekend by Rochester Village mayor Cindy Kurpely near the Wellington Reservation on Jones Road. The eagle’s nest was discovered near the park in early 2016. Since the chemical DDT was banned in 1972 as part of the Federal Pesticide Act, the species has built its population back up after a decades long decline that started after World War II.
