Local scientists say increased sightings of birds such as the
red-tailed hawk and American kestrel in local wilderness parks are an

2007 Santiago fires. The raptor nesting survey also confirmed that a resident bald eagle pair again
successfully reared two young this year. Read more about the study at The Orange County Register.
