For the first time in more than 200 years, a bald eagle nest has been discovered in Philadelphia. Wildlife authorities aren't saying exactly where the nest is, presumably to give the eagle pair some protection from tourists.

RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.

The birthplace of America is hoping for another visit from the stork. For the first time in over 200 years, a bald eagle nest has been discovered in Philadelphia. That city is already home to the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and those other Philadelphia Eagles. Wildlife authorities aren't saying exactly where the nest is; presumably to give the bald eagle couple some privacy and some protection from the city's tourists.

It's MORNING EDITION.
