An American Bald Eagle takes off from a tree at Kingston Point Park along the West shore of the Hudson River in Kingston, New York March 23, 2015.  An eaglet hatched in the Pennsylvania wild was seen for the first time on Wednesday by thousands who watched live footage of the fuzzy fledgling from a camera monitoring a resurgence of bald eagles in the northeastern United States. Bald eagles, which live only in North America, were nearly wiped out over the past century due to hunting, habitat destruction and DDT chemical poisoning, which caused their eggs to crack prematurely. In the United States, there are currently about 10,000 nesting pairs of bald eagles, about a fifth of the number when the birds were adopted as the national symbol in 1782, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
