Fruitful Meeting to Address Pole Issues

Several of the Eastwood Eagle Watchers  and  a City of Dayton Water Department official met with supervisors from the Dayton Power and Light Company inside the well field this morning to address the obvious eaglet safety issues. We agreed on which of the poles to install the avian protection devices next. They are in possession of enough devices to cover 12 more poles. The work will be completed tomorrow. We also discussed better ways to discourage the eaglets from perching on the poles on which the devices were previously installed as well as the possibility of installing a tall pole with crossbeams but no wiring near the area that is still presenting some challenges.

All three eaglets and both adults were seen flying nearby and all appear to be healthy. We cannot stop the eaglets from perching on poles but we can surely discourage the behavior. DP&L seems very willing and eager to do what they can to protect the eaglets.
