Our state has a new plan to help protect bald eagles.

The birds remain on the list of threatened species in New York, but the bald eagles seem to be growing in numbers across the state.

New York officials want to maintain an average bald eagle population of at least 200 breeding pairs.  Since these iconic birds seem sensitive to human activity, officials say there should be a minimum buffer zone of 330 feet.

The state Department of Environmental Convservation would like to make it illegal for people, boats, snowmobiles and drones to come within that buffer zone.
