Last week two Bald Eaglets were hatched in a nest right next door to the Andersen Windows facility in Bayport. On Earth Day, employees learned how to be good neighbors, in the hopes that the raptor family hangs around for years to come.
Andersen Windows has new neighbors—of the raptor variety.
Of all the places along the St. Croix River Valley that a bald eagle family could build a home, they chose to nest in a tree right next door to Andersen’s factory in Bayport.
Just this month, two eaglets were hatched, and according to Susan Roeder of Andersen, raptor experts say the bald eagles could be living there for years to come.
“Since they're going to be next-door neighbors, Andersen wanted to start things off on the right foot,” Roeder said. “So we held a unique luncheon on Earth Day to teach employees how to be good neighbors to bald eagles.”
