'Miracle' re-built nest results in baby eagle

Wildlife News
 

Here's another story about the man-made nest in Campbell River, BC.  Too bad David Hancock is not acknowledged as producing such nests many times in the past.  This is nothing new but kudos to the residents up there who made this nest for their eagles.

An amazing homeless shelter for a pair of bald eagles became a nursery this spring, much to the elation of the Campbell River residents who helped to built it.

It's a unique story of compassion and creativity snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.

A group of Galerno Road residents were outraged and saddened in February when an eagle nesting tree was illegally felled in their neighborhood, literally while a pair of eagles were trying to fix it up for the season. The Conservation Officer Service is investigating the possibility of charges under the Wildlife Act.

But that was no help to the eagles - a fixture in the neighborhood for several years - as they rushed to build a replacement nest.

"They were trying all these different trees out here, trying to put limbs and grass and leaves and whatnot in them, but they just kept falling through," said Janis MacDougall, who lives with husband Jim next to the property where the tree was cut down.
