Rescued Batavia-area eaglets to be released

Officials say eaglets whose nest was destroyed months ago in a storm will be released at Starved Rock State Park.
The eagle family had a nest on the campus of Mooseheart Child City & School, a residential school near Batavia for at risk-children. The eaglets were about seven weeks old when winds and rains during Memorial Day weekend knocked the nest to the ground.
A manmade nest was built after the storm, but wildlife officials say the eaglets weren't being fed.
Dawn Keller works with the Flint Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation Facility in Barrington, where the eagles were brought. She says a release date hasn't been determined yet, but it'll happen this month.
Keller says the state park is good location because there's a strong winter population of eagles there.
