Isn't this the saddest thing. Just awful.
We have Opsreys nesting near here under the protection of the RSPB, who keep a watch, they flew in from West Africa within a day of each other a few weeks ago, and two days ago laid the first egg.
They are beautiful but small fry really compared to these beutiful eagles, sad the female has lost her mate.

All they wanted to do was Dance, Dance!!!

They're pickin' up the prisoners
And puttin em in a pen
And all she wants to do is dance, dance
Rebels been rebels
Since I don't know when
And all she wants to do is dance
Molotov cocktail the local drink
And all she wants to do is dance, dance

Nothing more humiliating than getting hurt while in the throes of passion!

We have tons of Redtail hawks around here too and turkey vultures.

Another beautiful bird, you must feel honoured they chose your property. Great to see in the wild. I felt honoured the other day when a Greater Spotted Woodpecker came to the bird feeder!
