Update 3/6/2015: Prince William Times agrees that the City of Manassas should hold off on construction until late Summer, when the fledglings have left the nest. Here's the story.
Update 3/2/2015: Video I just shot today of the loud construction going on in front of the eagles nest. What if that pounding causes an egg to crack? Or spooks the adult to crack the eggs by accident? Or makes them leave the nest so the eggs freeze?

Update 2/24/15: Google Map shows construction NOT outside the required 660-foot buffer zone for work near an eagle's nest. The media is reporting that it is. It clearly is NOT. Try about 250 feet.
