Abstract

A third of Maine's 74 bald eagle pairs live on coastal islands. Eagles were widespread from the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries, but hunting, logging, and pesticides significantly reduced their numbers. Although they prefer white pines for their thousand-pound nests, island eagles have adapted to damaged spruces, and two islands have been protected for eagle management sites.
