AN impromptu protest has delayed the removal of a tree containing an uninhabited eagles' nest built last year on Port Metro Vancouver property.

PMV had sent an arbourist to cut down the tree on the 200-block of East Esplanade Tuesday morning to make room for roadwork and Spirit Trail connections coming with the Low Level Road project.
