Excerpts from Eagle On Alliance Interview by WVEC
“People who want the nests to stay formed Eagle on Alliance. They questioned the legality of continued nest removal, saying the ongoing efforts violated the federal permit.
“I don’t think they’ve followed the permit to the letter. The permit says three nests and partial nests, now define a nest for me. That’s something no one has done,” said Carol Senechal with Eagle On Alliance. “According to our experts and they are eagle experts, a nest consists of one stick laid in a tree by an eagle.”
Despite the latest ruling, Alliance members say they will continue fighting to keep future eagle nests in place. Norfolk will continue to make sure the nests come down.”
