WATERBURY, Vt. -

Vermont's small population of bald eagles is growing.

A decade ago, Vermont was the only state without nesting pairs of the nation's symbol. The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department has been working hard to re-introduce the birds. And they are calling this their most successful year yet, with 15 documented nests and 23 new eaglets born and leaving the nest on their own.
