Hurricane destroyed Palm Springs North nest DA004, last sighting OCT 5, 2016
An observer writes (OCT 23, 2017):
I saw your eagle site and your contact information and wanted to let you know about the PSN nest. In short: The eagles were last seen by me at the nest on October 5, 2016, the afternoon before a big storm hit us last year. They never came back.
I drive by the nest everyday, 2 to 4 times, and have never seen them again.
This last hurricane finally destroyed the large nest that was on the massive Australian pine. Although I have seen bald eagles twice since the original abandonment, near the tree and nest, I never saw these go near the nest. These birds looked to be unrelated immature birds.
I have not heard anything new about the planned construction of the Wal-mart and Publix on the eagle nest site since the eagles and the nest are no longer there.
