— More bald eagles appear to be nesting in Kansas.

The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism says a survey found eight eagle nests with eggs in south-central Kansas. That's up from seven active nests last year in the area that stretches from Marion County to Kingman County.

Charlie Cope, wildlife biologist at the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, told The Wichita Eagle that five active nests were found in Cowley County and one each in Sumner, Kingman and Sedgwick counties. The active Sedgwick County nest is near Derby on the Arkansas River.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says about 60 active eagle nests are expected to be found in Kansas this year. Kansas had about 50 nests last year.

Why don't they do a live web cam? It would be great for that part of Kansas to get seen on the web. See my reference to the Decorah eagles at kiddos under Wellcommons.

Once they see what is happening, many Kids love this site. They can watch it off and on for hours while they do other things.

That has been watched thousands, if not millions, of times already. I watch it all the time.

I have watched bald eagles in Western Kansas. It's time for Central and Western Kansas to get some publicity for the many good things they have (I grew up in Hutchinson).
