In my experience, some other areas are also fortunately periodic places where the big raptors can survive.
From Sea cliffs far south in Baja to ancient dead trees on Pafici Northwest coasts, Ospreys nest from year to year, sometimes leaving because of human pressures (development, too much access too close via vehicle, gun target pracitce, and nesting failures rsulting from ingestion of the wrong stuff, whether lead-poisoned birds or sea life poisoned by other chemicals (the research can discover just what happened in many cases) - from direct potshots by gun users, and more.

The big Golden Eagles I knew in Southern CA mountains did not leave because of lack of food, but because of far too many humans trekking up their too-roaded, too-trail-developed world.
Consider this.
The Bald Eagles which used to be a big part of this Salmon country here, are gone because of the dams and the diversions emptying the once-salmon-rich rivers, taking the waters upstream of me down far south to grow cotton and support overpopulating humanity. These eagles were shot by gun-happy kids whenever and wherever they were out of sight of people who would stop this toy-death. I have seen and passed among them, arguing with gun-toy people can be dangerous.

THe Condors, the Turkey vultures, these other ecologically necessary beautiful beings also suffer from human arrogation of the landscape. Nature has good ways of recycling, reincarnating life, and the vilifying and poaching of these, too, occur, and as I implied their starvation because of humans.

I understand that even the littlest hawk, the Kestrel some pairs of which I know where I spend most days, are also in trouble. If no one has posted on them, I will .

Yurok tribe here is trying to get California Condor reintroduction.
Thanks for publicising the findings of Audobon Society, even though John James shot everything in order to paint it!
