Big Pine Nest Update

Jordan Lake: I want to share with you a chart that is used by the US Fish and Wildlife Service to help people understand how human impacts can effect breeding bald eagles. The Big Pine nest is currently going from Phase I to Phase II. Please take a moment and study this chart and then let your mind dwell on the fact that the gate to the shelter is open and allowing human disruption. The parents are trying to lay eggs at a point in the chart where the US FWS says that “human activity of even limited duration may cause nest desertion and abandonment of territory for the breeding season”. Please, continue to let your voices be heard daily. Call, email or visit those who are refusing to shut the gate. We want the Big Pine couple to succeed in having a family while we can work on the possibility of a web cam that we can all watch.
