请求高人指点: 原文: In the valley lay the strong nest of that "proud bird of the mountains" for whose extermination they had come so far.
参考译文:山谷下面便是“骄傲的山鹰”的坚固巢穴,他们千里迢迢此行的目的就是要摧毁它。

个人感觉,从目前仅有的内容来看,从语意上来说,whose可以指前面出现过的名词包括鸟,也可以指巢,还可以指山谷,三选一的话,从语法角度,应该是bird,但从逻辑上来说,应该是nest.
您的译文也是采取了模糊处理,用了一个“它”,它其实也是可以指前面出现的三个名词,是不是?
