Not what it might seem... At the city park next to my house, the Wildlife Resource folks set up a bald eagles nest on one of the electrical power towers. Pretty cool, there's an adult pair and I can hear eaglets at night when I'm walking the dog. Tonight some folks started shooting off fireworks right underneath the tower. Not tiny firecrackers, but big exploding rocket types, going off right by the eagles nest. I can see the tower from my back yard, it's very close, and I saw the startled adult eaglets fly around the tower, screaming in terror. Thinking the folks may just not know about the nest, I hollered at them, told them there's a nesting pair of bald eagles, yah yah yah. This time they pointed the next rocket right at the nest!!! So I told them "keep this s**t up, I'm calling the cops" After all, it is illegal to set off fireworks in town....and also illegal to disturb an endangered species. Of course, being typical rednecks, some woman hollered back "go ahead, call the cops..." So I did. While I was waiting outside to see if the cops showed up, a car with some women and a baby stopped by and thanked me for doing something. I'm not sure if the cops showed up or not, I couldn't see through the trees, but a few minutes later the fireworks did indeed stop and the park became very quiet. I hope a couple of drunk rednecks went to jail....and the eagles don't abandon their nest.
