At left, the eagles in better times (spring 2006), in the same nest near Pearl Lake. Below, the crushed rem- nants of the dead tree and the eagle nest. By Jean Doran Matua, Editor A popular attraction for local residents of all ages has been lost. People have stopped for years to watch the eagles in a nest along County Road 48 near Pearl Lake. School buses passing by would stop. But, after severe winds last week, the dead tree that supported the nest was blown over. The next morning there were frantic calls to local DNR officer Brian Mies, and even to the Tri- County News. People were con- cerned that someone may have intentionally downed the tree. Mies checked out the scene at around 7:30 the morning after and found that it was a natural tragedy, not a man-made one. The adult eagle pair had made that tree and nest their home for manyyears; Mies couldn't remem- ber how long it's been, it's been that many years. Each year they lay eggs, fish and hunt for their young, and raise their chicks to survive on their own. This year the eagles had two young. Sadly, both eaglets per- ished from the fall, after being flung about 20 feet from where the tree fell. Mies and his son Brad exam- ined the area and found fish and skeletons among the sticks that had once made up the nest. It was Brad who took these great photos. The adults ~urvived the crash of their nest, as they were able to fly away. They circled the area afterward, in obvious distress. The pair will build a new nest this year, one that they will return to next spring. They will not lay eggs again this year. Seeing an eagle nest so closely, even a broken one, is a rare event. Even rarer is seeing eaglets close- up. Because the temperature the night of the storm stayed down around 38 degrees, the eaglets were very well preserved. Officer Mies was able to scoop them up and freeze them at home. He will turn them over to the DNR office in St. Paul. If possible, they can stuff the eaglets to use for teaching purposes. Mies explained that it is rare to find such well- preserved eaglets. He was also pleasantly surprised by their large size, about the size of small chickens, showing that they were healthy and thriving. At right, one of the two eaglets that perished when their nest crashed to the ground in a wind- storm. The DNR may be able to have the dead birds stuffed and use them for educational pur- poses.
