A really strange landform has made the news in Russia
and now has appeared in the Mail Online. Articles with
pictures and rather weird speculation about meteorites
and all sorts of other processes that might have created it.

What (or who) created Siberia's 'Eagle's Nest'?
A meteorite, a nuke or gulag inmates? Scientists

What created this mysterious Siberian crater? by Kate
Baklitskaya, The Siberian Times, October 14, 2012

This is certainly one of the strangest craterwrongs that
I have ever seen. Some of the various theories that have
been proposed for its origins are mentioned in:

Patomsky crater - the nest of fire Eagle. Unknown Russia

I would be interested in what the people on this list
think about what might have created this pile of rock?

Does anyone know what is being said about it among
Russian geologists and geomorphologists?

Whatever, it is, it is quite young.
