Bird Nest MTV Cribs Style

According to Start Sampling's trivia question, the largest bird's nest was built by a pair of bald eagles near St. Petersburg, Florida, and measured 9 feet 6 inches wide and 20 feet deep. It was examined in 1963 and was estimated to weigh 4,409 pounds.

When I saw this, I was astonished and had to read it to Don. He shrugged his shoulders and said, "Hell. Maybe it was left by a Pterodactyl and the eagles just took it over."

Crazy. I have a hard time believing the measurements to be true. I can't wrap my head around a nest that's 20 feet deep, not even if that nest is in Bedrock City . What do you think?
