I have Eagles in my own back yard, and see them occasionally driving to/from work. I have lived up here all my life, and in the past year I have seen more than in the previous 53 years, and those were not in the wild either. Eagles are making a huge come back.
We were in Minong last year and saw a nest of at least 5 Eagles next to a rail line about a mile from where I used to camp when I was a kid, never saw eagles back then. Now the resort is completely gone only a scant trace it was ever there, remnants of the oat house and fish cleaning shack and a lonely dilapidated pier, but the Eagles are there!
