Construction near eagle nest site resumed today

Following intervention by eagle watchers and advice of FWC, the school board suspended excavation that was to have been done in January just as the eggs were hatching.

Today the construction crews were out and there is digging in front of the nest, presumably resumption of the deferred activity. Since the eagles have fledged, this is permitted under FWC guidelines, even though the chicks are still returning to the nest.

I hope the behavior of the birds will not be affected. Let's try to keep an eye out for them. The island in the middle of the road provides a good vantage point.
