Tnx for Your interest! Name 'eagle nest' are not officially used, but more in local slang. :) This term comes from idea - if man somethimes are called as "man like Bear" or "man like Eagle" then from this in my childhood we called this cable operator baskets as 'eagles nests'. :D

In nova days this baskets are not wide used anymore because mainly our phone cables are dig in earth, but poles with baskets can still seen in small towns. I seen one basket even in Brussels, but because was rainy and I was in bad mood I captured not very good pictures with basket.
