A warning for bird watchers: Give eagles space

Posted: Updated:
WATERBURY, Vt. -
Bird watchers are being reminded to give nesting bald eagles plenty of space.

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is urging anyone who sees a nesting eagle not to get closer than 300 feet. Activity too close to the nest can result in eagles abandoning their young. Harassing a bald eagle is illegal and a violation of the state endangered species statute.
