Eagles build new nest

It has come to our attention that there is a disturbing misconception going around town that the city of Homer cut down the tree that held the eagles nest in town near the stoplight. This is not accurate. Those of you that were here this winter will remember how intense a winter we had, with more than one blizzard and very strong winds. It was during one of those blizzards that the tree was blown over.

We want to clear up this rumor and let everyone know that it was in fact the weather, not the city, which is to blame for the tree not standing anymore. The eagles have made another nest on a tree near their old nest, across from the post office. Next time youre at the post office look for our pair of our resident eagles.
