Yesterday a Bald Eagle nest south of Fisherville was removed to make way for a Wind Turbine installation. Apparently the tree that it was in was scheduled for removal to make way for a service road. If the nest had of remained, it would have been within 20 metres of the blade sweep so I guess the MNR figured it was safer for the eagles to nest elsewhere.
I'm not advocating any position with this post - just throwing it out there for people to be aware of and to make their own conclusions. A quick google search and you will find many articles pertaining to this online.

On another note I took a photo of a Junco today coming to my feeder. My guess is it's a female "Oregon/Pink-sided type" Junco, a western form of Slate-coloured Junco. Any thoughts?
