Telecommunications tower project in Iran shelved to save birds’ nest

In an inspirational move, technical experts at a telecommunications company in the northeastern Iranian city of Mashhad who were about to launch a project, decided to call it off after they realized that a bird and four of its hatchlings were living atop the radio mast that was part of the project.

An official with the Hamrahe Aval Telecommunications Company said the tower was planned to be relocated, but after the technicians saw the nest, it was decided that the project will be canceled until the young hawks grow up and fly the nest.

The protected area hosts a large variety of rare species of birds.
