Bald eagle nests have been observed in Cape Cod for the first time since 1905.
According to the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife, the new nest was spotted in the small seaside town of Barnstable, part of a major increase in the overall bald eagle population.
More than 70 new bald eagle nests were observed across the state, including in Fitchburg, Wenham, Concord, Rutland, Wareham, Medford, Northampton, and Hudson.

The surge in bald eagle populations was enough to help change the bird's status from 'threatened' to 'special concern' on the Massachusetts Endangered Species Act list.
