The popular eagle nests at Norfolk Botanical Garden are gone.
Nuckols Tree Service Inc. removed the nests quickly this morning after climbers found they weren't as large or "intertwined" as officials believed, city spokeswoman Lori Crouch said.
The partial nest also is gone and consisted only of a couple of small branches, but officials wanted it removed because it could be a draw to eagles attracted to old nesting sites, according to a garden spokesperson.
