Baby Eagles Nest At Orioles Spring Training Stadium

SARASOTA, Fla. (WJZ ) -- The Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota, Florida is home to the Baltimore Orioles during spring training.
But a new batch of birds recently moved in -- bald eagles.
The problem is this space can be dangerous for the baby birds.
"Where they typically nest in a tree, it's called branching, they'll jump from branch to branch," a Sarasota County wild life official told CNN. "Now if they're doing that up there with all that netting and material and all that, there's a very strong risk of entanglement and that could be fatal for young eagles."
The county took down the nest, humanely, while the eagles watched from a distance. Wildlife officials hope the eagles will stay in the area and nest in a cell tower.
