Eagles Soar at DuPont Site
June 13, 2006
DuPont News, - A pair of bald eagles is successfully raising its own chicks for the first time in 15 years at the DuPont site in Repauno, New Jersey. In the past, the eagles have fostered chicks placed in their nest by New Jersey Fish and Wildlife volunteers. This year, however, the adults have succeeded in hatching their own eggs in a nest high above the Delaware River in a location fairly inaccessible to disturbance from humans or animals.
In New Jersey, bald eagles remain on the endangered species list. They are making a dramatic recovery, however, from the low point in 1982 when only one nesting pair lived in the state. Today the state boasts an estimated 53 nesting pairs most of them in the southern, less populated area of the state.
Moe Pirestani, DuPont Corporate Real Estate, manages the Repauno site for tenant manufacturers. We welcome the visits of a local volunteer eagle watcher and appreciate his knowledgeable observations. He not only observes the eagles, but also ospreys and other birds that now find sanctuary and plentiful food on our 1,800 acre site, Moe said.
