Eagle-eyed Audubon Eaglewatch Volunteers Catch Illegal Nest Removal in Bradenton!

Audubon EagleWatch volunteers aren't just Citizen Scientists, they are also important eyes and ears for enforcing protections for our national bird.  Thanks to EagleWatch in Bradenton, the US Fish and Wildlife Service is proceeding with charges against a cell phone tower maintenance company which arbitrarily-- and illegally-- removed an eagle nest from a Bradenton tower.


A telecommunications repair company has agreed to plead guilty to violating the Bald Eagle Protection Act for destroying or removing a nest from atop a cell tower while performing repairs.
