Talk:Plum Island Eagle Sanctuary

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I originally included this as a note under Starved Rock State Park. A deletion troll immediately deleted the mention as being "irrelevant" even though 1) it directly adjoins the park and expands the protected area and is part of the integrated ecosystem; 2) it is clearly visible from almost every major lookout in the park; 3) it is an important nesting site for bald eagles; and 4) many of the Starved Rock visitors are there hoping to see the bald eagles. That's why I made this a separate page, because it was deleted from where I placed it. It belongs on Wikipedia somewhere. jaknouse (talk) 17:39, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

It would be great if a citation troll would add reliable third-party sources to establish notability and to support the facts lest the OR trolls carry the day.Novaseminary (talk) 02:22, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
The source that someone added which said that that the eagle release happened at Plum Island and that that was "at Starved Rock" I think reinforces Jaknouse's original points. But all's well that ends well, a separate article is fine too. North8000 (talk) 18:03, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

Size[edit]

The sources list the size as 45, 52 and 55 acres. This can be covered when a body is developed; I didn't want to clutter the "lead" with qualifiers or multiple numbers. North8000 (talk) 12:30, 26 October 2011 (UTC)
