The last time I updated you on the rebuilding of Ed Smith Stadium, the new spring training home of the Baltimore Orioles, the Florida State Supreme Court was preparing to hear a case about whether back room deals were brokered between local government and the ball club, without the public's knowledge. The high court ruled favorably for the local government. Construction continued --- and the stadium really started looking incredible. Then, a couple of weeks ago, news broke that two bald eagles, which are a protected species, suddenly took up residency in the right field lights. There was talk about what would happen to the construction site. The birds didn't mind the construction -- they showed up during the drilling, pounding, beeping and other loud building noises. A Florida Fish & Wildlife official said they would monitor the situation, but they weren't too concerned because the birds were a good distance from the actual construction. It was speculated if the eagles had chicks, there just wouldn't be any night games at the stadium. So, when I snapped this shot of one watching over the construction workers at sunset, I thought he looked like he was having the last laugh. Not so fast. Within two weeks, Florida Fish & Wildlife suddenly moved the eagles' two eggs to Tennessee for incubation --- and, destroyed the nest. A wildlife official was quoted as saying the birds are upset, of course, but it's in their best interest not to nest in such an urban area.
