White Rock Lake Eagles Still Spotted Flying Around

Despite the recent destruction of their nest in White Rock Lake, Nick and Nora were seen flying around the area according to a Dallas Morning News article from February 16 which reports, 


“The eagles could be seen carrying fish in their talons, flying down to a creek nearby. Multiple people said they saw them carrying small branches — and many hope it’s the start of a new nest.


Though it is unclear if the bald eagles will build a new nest near the old site, a wooded area along North Buckner Boulevard at Lake Highlands Park, people said they are still finding joy and inspiration from them.


Joan Layden, who lives near the park, said Wednesday was the third time that she came to the park to watch the eagles, though she had frequently seen them while driving past the area.


As the eagles flew around the empty field Wednesday afternoon, Layden said, she was happy to see that the birds were still active in the park, despite the destruction of their nest.

“It shows their resilience and determination,” she added.”


Nick and Nora’s nest which contained evidence of an egg, fell after heavy winds blew on Tuesday afternoon according to an Advocate article which reports, 


“High wind gusts were cited as the reason for the nest’s destruction. According to the National Weather Service, the wind speeds ranged between 16 and 23 mph from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 15.


Maria Hasbany, the District 9 Park and Recreation board member, said the nest was taken by the Fish & Game Warden after it fell.


Urban biologists found evidence of only one egg. The nest itself was estimated to be about 3 feet wide and 2-3 feet deep. It weighed around 100 pounds.


Hasbany also said officials think the eagles are a relatively young couple and might have been inexperienced in building nests; this one was built on a partially dead limb.”


The area in White Rock Lake is still being protected by the city and the fences are still kept intact since there is still a chance that the pair will rebuild a stronger nest.
