A baby eagle eating a squirrel? Nice. I love anything that eats these goddamned nuisance rodents. Nothing but rats with overblown tails. tee-hee.

Me? I like cardinals. We have a ton of them and I keep a feeder outside to draw them. My 3 indoor cats flip the eff out and sit at the windowsills 'quacking' and swishing their tails.

The average life span of a meadow vole is two months. Only one in a hundred makes it to winter. Eagles and cats see eye to eye on some things.

lol, yes I guess they do. I'm sure if I had outdoor cats, there would be less cardinals. Also less squirrels. They freak when either is in the backyard.

The Eastern Gray Squirrel is one of the nicest creatures on the face of the earth. If the idiots of the Island would help out a little like a little food , due to the fact the people no longer like large trees, or a couple of nut or fruit trees on their property. You can't blame this on the Squirrels ! I see most humans as Rodents, and Squirrels as the good guys.
