Storm topples Mooseheart eagles’ nest

Mooseheart’s eagle family has a new, man-made home.

On Monday night, security staff on the Mooseheart campus found the weekend’s strong winds had knocked the eagle’s nest out of a pine tree on the northwest corner of the grounds near Randall Road.

Wildlife experts rescued the two eaglets in the nest, which tumbled 85 feet to the base of the tree the eagles have called home since March of 2010.
