Eagles Nest in Wesbrook
In September 2022, a temporary cone was installed on the eagle’s nest located on the corner of Ross Drive and Birney Avenue in Wesbrook Village to protect the eagles from noise and support successful breeding during construction of a residential development adjacent to the established nest. At the time, many campus residents had questions about why the nest was being coned and concerns about the impact on the eagles and the biodiversity of the campus. For some, there continue to be questions and concerns and there has been a request to remove the cone. We wanted to answer those questions and share an update on the nest.
