Workers on contract with the state Department of Transportation this morning took down a 3-foot black plastic cone that for 35 days blocked a pair of bald eagles from their nest in downtown Redding.

The cone was wired to the nest on Nov. 16 in an attempt to get the eagles to move to another nest because their old one will be 100 feet away from construction on the Highway 44 Sacramento River bridge slated to start this spring.

The eagles didnít take the hint to move from the area ó even after workers pulled down sticks the birds placed in an effort to build a new nest about ten feet from the old one. Caltrans began getting calls from the public asking that the cone be removed and agency officials decided Wednesday to do so.

Gathering to watch the cone come down, people who had opposed it popped a bottle of Champagne once it was removed.

ďA toast to the power of the people, babe,Ē said Terri Lhuillier, who helped lead the effort to remove the cone.
