Bald eagle sightings in Richland

RICHLAND, Wash. -- A pair of bald eagles are getting local attention. They built a nest in Richland, right off Highway 240.

You can see the birds from the road, nesting in a tree in the Yakima Delta.

The Department of Fish and Wildlife says bald eagles are not uncommon in our area and it is further evidence recovery efforts have been successful.

Bald eagles were taken off the endangered species list in 2007.

Viewers say they often see bald eagles in West Richland, Pasco and Columbia Park in Kennewick.
