"i nm cnuerre. reciona wi n ire BILL SWANK . Florida Power & Light Co. spokesman -MS martin COUNTS -'g PALM BEACH COUNTY END OF SEASON Better Coofare "TV d pjologist with the Florida Game &kd Fresh Water Fish Commission, said the eagles may have Ibeen wet or holding a fish in their cfcws while resting on the metal tfossarms of the T-shaped poles, jrle speculated that the large birds then touched one of the hot wires atop the poles, completing the electrical circuit and causing the fatal shock. 1 1 "It's a well-known place (for birds) to perch and watch the water for food," he said. The eagles were found from November to February, but biologists weren't sure of the cause of death until they sent one of the birds to Wisconsin for a necropsy. The other dead eagles were too decomposed for examination, w After biologists notified FPL of the problem in February, ally, has rebounded to the point that it is now classified as "threatened." One of five eagles at Treasure Coast Wildlife Hospital in Hobe Sound is a shock victim, but it's not known where the accident happened. "We have one that lost a wing after it apparently touched a power wire," hospital director Dan Martinelli said. The bird, a juvenile when it was injured five years ago, is were converted from wood to metal in 1992. No one could explain the sudden surge pf eagle deaths after years without problems. Schuette is working with FPL to find other metal poles near eagle habitat that may need to be modified. Four other eagles are nesting nearby in the DuPuis Reserve. Florida has more than 3,000 eagles, more than any other state except Alaska, which has more than 40,000. , The eagle, once considered an "endangered" species nation ROB BARGEStaff Artist company workers responded quickly, Schuette said. First they tried a tangle of wires atop the poles to discourage the eagles from landing. When that didn't work, they covered the metal crossbars with wood last month. Swank said the crossbars .Designer crippled and a permanent resident at the hospital. no 1 WE SHIP ANYWHERE!!! f ' O ;L. w i:-- NO MINIMUM, NO RESERVE1 .
