Norfolk Botanical Garden is losing its popular bald eagle nests. City crews will remove one complete nest and two partial nests Thursday.

City and federal officials say the nests have to be removed because of safety concerns. The botanical garden is near Norfolk International Airport. In the past 10 years, four bald eagles have collided with aircraft using the airport.

The city acquired state and federal permits this week to remove the nests.
