But an effort is underway to bring nesting bald eagles back to the Green Mountain State. The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department has coordinated a restoration project involving the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the National Wildlife Federation, Central Vermont Public Service, Outreach for Earth Stewardship, Green Mountain Power Corporation, Audubon Vermont, and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. It's an effort that involves bringing six to nine young eagles to Vermont over a three-year period from other states to be sheltered, fed and monitored by volunteers and then released with the hope they will stay and raise their own young nearby. Specially constructed containers called "hacking boxes" were built for the program to raise the eagles in. These boxes have also been used successfully to reintroduce Peregrine Falcon populations.
