The preliminary report also noted eight active bald eagle nests in the vicinity of the project area.Wind farm could harm the N.C.'s bald eagle population.350402012-05-23T12:05:10Z2012-05-23T12:05:10ZThe preliminary numbers on bald eagle kills are astronomical by almost any measure, bird advocates say. Based on recorded bald eagle sightings in the area, the Fish and Wildlife Service estimates that the Pantego project would account for 3.4 to 20.7 eagle "takes" annually.
"That's a shocking number."
