Eaglets rescued when nest falls near our Illinois home
The first active Bald Eagle nest in Broward County since before the 1970s, in Pembroke Pines, is only about 1 1/2 miles from our Florida home. Similarly, the first post-DDT nest in Kane County was discovered two years ago only about a mile away from our second home in Illinois. This past week, the nest was blown down in a windstorm. Two eaglets were rescued and an artificial best was constructed in the nest tree. So far, the eaglets appear to be doing well.
