I don't know if this story is more ironic than tragic.

The bald eagle and all animals inherited the earth long before man was a spark in God's eye. I believe God goofed when he made Adam & Eve. All this inhumanity to animals could've been avoided if Eve hadn't listened to the dam serpent. Sadly noted.

Noted, twittered and google shared. This really makes me angry. Did they really have to choose that specific spot knowing that is was obviously bald eagle habitat? I mean, seriously? They didn't think that maybe moving where they chose to build the turbines would have been better instead of destroying that nest and making the area inhabitable for bald eagles. I do support wind energy but not at the cost of innocent lives.

I love birds of prey but I don't want to depend on coal for energy. I do agree that the birds were there first and the wind farm belonged somewhere else.

Terrible decision. They should have picked another place for the turbine.
