Eastside Audubon is applauding a Kirkland group’s recent decision to shift the position of the Fourth of July fireworks barge to protect two baby bald eagles still in their nest at Heritage Park.

The bald eagle is our national symbol and the Heritage Park nest has a special place in downtown Kirkland and along the July Fourth parade route,” said Andy McCormick, president of Eastside Audubon. “We are very happy that Celebrate Kirkland! understood the benefit to the eagles of having the fireworks display farther away from the nest to reduce the risk of disturbing the two eaglets that have not yet fledged and cannot fly. It will be a great day to celebrate the birth of our country and the bald eagle.
