Bemidji-area eaglets survive after wind blows down nest
Sunday's winds caused a dead spruce holding a large eagles' nest to come crashing down north of Bemidji.
The nest tree, a roadside attraction in a swamp east of Irvine Avenue Northwest and south of the intersection of U.S. Highway 71, broke in pieces as it landed and crushed the nest. The parent birds would have flown as their tree toppled, but their young weren't able to fly yet.
