As a former Vice President of the Catalina Conservancy, I find this news... and the additional two hatched a bit later... to be very intersting. For 27 years the eagles could not successfully brood and hatch young, yet all of a sudden two pairs have done so successfully.

Will be very interested in seeing why this might be the case. Kudos to the Institute for Wildlife Studies that has conducted this work out on Catalina Island during this time, and is also involved in the successful effort on Santa Cruz Island.
