Effort to Protect Eagles in Kansas

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Parks officials are taking steps to protect a pair of eagles and their babies who are nesting at a lake just east of Topeka.

Shawnee County workers – with the help of the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism – placed two buoys this week in Lake Shawnee. The goal is to keep boaters a safe distance from the shore near the tree where the birds are nesting.

Mike McLaughlin, of the Shawnee County Parks and Recreation Department, says people in boats and kayaks had been getting close to the birds trying to get photos. McLaughlin says the nest is still visible, especially with a good camera lens.

A parks police officer reported seeing at least two eaglets in the nest.
