Update on the Eel River Bald Eagle nest

Tim Bray

This morning (13 January) the PG&E crew arrived to take down the nest tree, but the Eagles were in it, so the crews turned around and left. One could say the Eagles came to their own rescue.

Garry George of National Audubon Society (Director of their Clean Energy Initiative) contacted PG&E and was told they are "looking at alternatives as a result of the input from the public." They do still have Federal approval to take the tree down before January 15. George indicated a press release might be forthcoming from PG&E.

I am preparing a longer summary of the whole situation, but wanted to get the news out to those who are following this situation.
