The eagle nest at the south side of Clinton Lake has disappeared. Does anyone know what has happened to it? What caused it to fall out of the tree? The two eagles are still there, but are they likely to relocate to another lake now that their nest is no longer here?
Lew Ruona, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' manager at Clinton Lake, says the bald eagle nest was destroyed by high winds during an Aug. 16 storm. The displaced eagles, he said, are not expected to leave the area.
"They're still here," Ruona said. "They should build another nest."
Two other bald eagles are known to be nesting at the reservoir.
