The state Division of Fisheries and Wildlife said its first bald eagle nesting survey has verified 30 active nests in the state. The survey conducted last month found eight nests along the Connecticut River, six at the Quabbin Reservoir, and four along the Merrimack River. Fish and Game Commissioner Mary Griffin told The Recorder of Greenfield that she was encouraged by the numbers. The survey also found active nests at the Wachusett Reservoir, and in Framingham, Brookfield, Pittsfield, Webster, Middleborough, Fall River, and Plymouth. One nest failure was reported in Lakeville, where the wind blew a nest and two eggs out of a tree.
