Lake Hopatcong is home to at least two pairs of nesting bald eagles. The once rare birds are making a comeback and finding a niche among the busy lake population.
A construction project was delayed last spring when it was discovered a new pair had set-up a nest above a planned condominium site in Hopatcong.
Construction re-started after the three-offspring fledged and moved on.
Now the parents have returned to an uneasy standoff with the construction company.
