For The First Time In Decades, Nesting Bald Eagles Have Been Found In Every New Jersey County

We’ve got some good news for you! For this first time in at least forty years, nesting Bald Eagles have been found in every New Jersey county. Bald Eagles have been a symbol of America since 1782 and they thrived in our country for over a century. By the 1960s, their numbers had plummeted.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

If you see a Bald Eagle in New Jersey, you know what to do! Admire it from afar, do not disturb the bird or its surroundings, and take a picture if you can!
