Title: Birds in the News
Post by: T40cfr403 on April 25, 2015, 05:22:08 AM
The purpose of this thread is to provide a place for us to share stories, videos, photos, etc., about birds, especially eagles and other raptors, we've run across in the news and social media but that don't really "fit" in the Forum's other threads.  Here's one, for starters.

This inaugural post is pretty rough, because it's about poaching and the black market in eagle parts.  Mercifully, there are no photos.  WARNING: If you're going to read the linked stories, you'll need a strong stomach, a box of tissues and your blood pressure meds.  It's all about the money.  It's always all about the money. 

In today's news, Willard Maldonado pleaded guilty to killing bald eagles and selling the feathers.  The story doesn't mention what the sentencing guidelines are, but the federal maximums include up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000, per count.  http://www.justice.gov/usao-edwa/pr/willard-maldonado-pleads-guilty-five-violations-bald-eagle-protection-act-and-lacey-act

At the end of that news release are references to 2 other, similar cases: U.S. v. Hawk and U.S. v. Wahchumwah.  Maldonado, Hawk and Wahchumwah are all members of the federally recognized Yakama tribe.

Alfred Hawk was charged with conspiracy, and taking, transporting, offering and selling eagles, and transporting and selling wildlife with a market value in excess of $350.  He was sentenced to 6 months in prison and 2 years probation, which he violated.  In addition, Hawk was also mentioned in Wahchumwah's case.

Ricky Sam Wahchumwah was convicted of the same crimes as Hawk and sentenced to serve 1 month in jail and 3 months home confinement followed by 2 years of probation, and to pay a $425 penalty.  Here's a court document that lays out the case against Wahchumwah in the "Statement of Facts," beginning on Page 1.  https://www.eff.org/files/filenode/us_response_to_motion_to_suppress.pdf

Takeaways:  recent reports of eagles living more than 30 years in the wild;  recent report of older nestlings surviving falls from their nests.

Bald eaglet banding in Kansas.  I was rooting for the eaglets the whole way!!!

http://www.kansas.com/news/local/article21191127.html

Interesting side note in the story is that the adult male eagle is at least 31 years old and still going strong.  Take that with a previous posting ( http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/news/3726929-raptors-banded-duluths-evans-set-longevity-record ) about a 33+ year old bald eagle, and we may have to raise the limit a bit on how long bald eagles can live in the wild.

Accompanying the Kansas banding story was another link that has captioned photos only. 

http://www.kansas.com/sports/outdoors/article21187545.html

As you arrow through the photos, there are a couple of shots of an 8-10 week old eaglet that jumped from its nest and lived to tell about it.  Again, take that with a previous posting ( http://www.krcrtv.com/news/local/volunteers-unite-to-return-fallen-eaglet-to-nest/33045372 ) about an 8 week old California eaglet that survived an 80 foot fall from its nest, and we might be comforted to know that eaglets who haven't fledged yet may instinctively know how to soar and make a soft landing!!!!  ;)

This could be huge!  Finally, other commercial arenas that "take" migratory birds will be regulated with permits that have "teeth" to punish and require mitigation.  Those sectors include the following:

    Oil, gas, and wastewater disposal pits can entrap birds that are attracted to a perceived source of water. Birds that land on or fall into the pit become covered with oil and may ultimately die from drowning, exhaustion, exposure, or effects of ingested oil. Closed containment systems or properly maintained netting prevents birds from entering these sites.

    Methane or other gas burner pipes at oil production sites and other locations provide a hazard to birds from burning, entrapment in pipes or vents, or direct mortality from flame flare. Removing perches, installing perch deterrents, and covering pipes and other small openings can minimize this take.

    Communication towers can have a significant impact on birds, especially birds migrating at night. Using recommended tower-siting practices and design features such as appropriate lighting, shorter tower heights, and eliminating or reducing the use of guy wires can minimize bird take caused by collisions with these structures.

    Electric transmission and distribution lines impact a variety of birds through electrocution and collision. To reduce electrocutions, poles can be made avian-safe through pole and equipment design or through post-construction retrofitting measures. Collisions are best minimized through appropriate siting considerations.

They may also reconsider the rules that are in place now, such as they are, for the wind energy generation sector.

Here's the link to the USFWS Notice of Intent:  https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2015/05/26/2015-12666/migratory-bird-permits-programmatic-environmental-impact-statement

It will be published in the Federal Register on May 26, 2015, with a 60-day comment period.  This is still a long ways from actually issuing permits to any of these sectors, but it's a start and deserves our attention now, in its earliest stages of development.  You can bet the affected industry sectors will be commenting.  Birds can't without our help.

LPC finds dead bald eagle on power pole: http://www.timescall.com/longmont-local-news/ci_28193617/lpc-finds-dead-bald-eagle-power-pole

I contacted Longmont (Colorado) Power & Communications at the email address below to ask them if they had an Avian Protection Plan, if not why not, and if so are they complying with its provisions to prevent this from happening again.

[email protected]

Update - Haven't heard back from LPC, but there's a new story today. An Open Space biologist identified the electrocuted bald eagle as female and then found the nest nearby where a male is tending to 2 chicks on his own. Chicks are estimated to be about the same age as Decorah's chicks. I'm just sick about this.  :'(

Ohio got creative to hopefully bring happy endings to two separate disasters.  A burned Canada goose who lost her eggs to fire is now fostering orphaned goslings and an eaglet who survived a storm-ravaged nest failure will be placed in foster care at another eagle nest.  :)

Proposed bill (H.R.2280) for bird-safe Federal buildings. Not likely to have much effect if signed into law because it only applies to Federal buildings that are newly constructed, acquired or altered, none of which are very likely to occur frequently. "Bird-safe" in this bill primarily refers to reducing bird collisions and would put restrictions on the types and amounts of glass used in such buildings. But, it is the RIGHT THING TO DO!

https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-bill/2280/text

This bill was drafted in accordance to the requirements of Executive Order 13186, signed by President Clinton in 2001, which orders Federal agencies to develop Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to further the intent of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

Here's the text of EO 13186: https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2001/01/17/01-1387/responsibilities-of-federal-agencies-to-protect-migratory-birds

I went down a gigantic rabbit hole in search of an MOU between EPA and FWS regarding lead or pollutants or contaminants, etc., etc., and gave up.  I don't think one exists, but it should now that Congress seems to want to make it impossible for any agency to enforce the MTBA!  See the article below for more details, most of which I've already posted.

Post by: baziunc on June 25, 2015, 04:14:49 PM
Thanks, T40.  I have a positive outlook about that bill.  At least it's a step in the right direction.  Some bird-safe Federal buildings is more than none.  When that requirement is in place, it will set a precedent.  Precedents often become justifications for applying the same rules in other situations, and can lead to more widespread applications of them.

That's really freaky, T40!  Anyone who reads this needs to be sure to read the last 3 sentences to understand just how immediately this island went from being an ultra-busy and noisy nesting site to an abandoned one with no birds... literally overnight.  I'm going to guess it had to be a major nest disruption that affected the whole island at once - and since it wasn't fire or weather-related, then I suspect overhead flights, possibly at low and loud levels not usually experienced by those birds.  How awful - whatever caused it - and I hope the cause is discovered.  I hope they will come back.   :( :(

I'm so sad and angry about the EPA-caused accident in Colorado that allowed millions of gallons of toxic wastewater from an abandoned gold mine to spill into the Animas River there.  I saw on the national news tonight about the incredibly high levels of lead in it... not to mention the many other heavy metals, such as iron, zinc, and copper, and other toxic substances.  I don't think I'm going to be able to look at the articles that will surely follow about the chain of wildlife that surely will be poisoned, starting with the animals that are eating plant and animals in that river, and by swimming, diving, and drinking water in the river.  Of course there is huge impact on people, as well.  And it is already being reported by the U.S. Geological Survey that the size of the spill is 3 times what the EPA originally estimated.  It started in Colorado, and the Animas River in CO has already seen the spill flow into the San Juan River, in New New Mexico two days ago, where it has flowed through the Navajo Nation, and then it will converge with the Colorado River in Utah.  (Is Wyoming after that?)

A couple of the stories... the CNN and "USA Today" articles are the most recent ones I found - both updated within the last half-hour, and both with text, video, and photos...

"Iowa waterways are a disgrace." So says a Des Moines Register editorial with regard to toxic blue-green algae blooms. Florida had issued a similar warning in early summer about bald eagles being killed after eating coots that had ingested the same cyanobacteria. Evidently, eagles can directly ingest the toxic bacteria just by fishing or drinking from contaminated waterways.

Power pole aversion training for captive-bred California Condors has been so successful, there are now efforts underway to extend and improve that for chicks fledged in the wild as well as follow-up training for Condors already released to free-flying population.  This training first started back in 1994 with captive-bred Condors destined for release into the wild because electrocution, along with lead poisoning and microtrash, are the main threats to Condors.  Listen to the success statistics! ... Since that first started in 1994, there have been NO (as in not a single one!) electrocutions of a captive-bred Condor by perching on power poles, and only one (count 'em - ONE! - back in 2001!) electrocution of a Southern California Condor caused by a mid-air collission with power lines!!!!!

(After I read this, it made me realize that this might be what RRP was looking into as it might relate to the Bald Eagles in Decorah.)

Excellent read on Power Pole Aversion Training!

WE HAVE WORK TO DO, PEEPS!!!  From RRP's FB page:

Raptor Resource Project
59 mins ?

Earlier this month a released Philippine Eagle named ‪#‎Pamana‬ was shot and killed. Our friends at the Philippine Eagle Foundation were devastated. Adding to their sorrow, their government is considering stopping Philippine Eagle releases. It is our position that the Philippine Eagle can't be recovered without releases, education, protective laws, and strict enforcement. Dennis Salvador, the director of the Philippine Eagle Foundation, will be testifying in front of the Philippine congress on Tuesday, September 1st, in support of continuing releases.

I've linked to our letter supporting the Philippine Eagle Foundation and future releases. http://www.raptorresource.org/PEF.pdf. We are asking you to support Philippine Eagle releases as well. Please consider posting your positive support on their facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/phileaglefdn or Tweet to @PhilEagleFdn. Let our friends in the Philippines know you care. They are doing amazing work, and they had Bob's support as well.

Jocelyn Pride named 2015 Travel Photographer of the Year by the Australian Society of Travel Writers.

Flyaway was taken in Alaska?s Inside Passage and also published in Luxury Travel.

?We were in a small boat and I watched this bald eagle sitting in the treetops for what seemed like hours,? Pride says.

?As I was on the long end of my lens, my camera was getting heavier by the minute. A clue when eagles are about to take flight is that they poop. Patience was eventually rewarded as the eagle pooped then flew right past the boat. He was definitely on a mission and so was I ? motor winder on overdrive as I held my breath to keep the camera steady.

?I love this photo because, as the symbol of America, this eagle represents strength, power and determination. The way the light caught the end of the feathers was a bonus.?

First, there was this story from August 2015 that highlighted the discovery of the first bald eagle's nest in an Indiana state park. So far so good, as long as you ignore the park's naturalist calling eagles "cowards" when confronted by human activity.  ???

http://www.fox28.com/story/29746149/2015/08/09/fox28

And now this! The state is going to build a resort in the park, just a mile from the only bald eagle nest.  The DNR is fully on board with this idea and makes a ridiculous statement that "federal regulations mandate builders to keep construction sites at least 330 ft. away from eagle nests," so everything should be OK. Yeah, right. Poor eagles. They just bought their dream home and will now have to put up with bulldozers and then tourists. Or NOT! Habitat, people!  >:(

Make sure you click on the photo to see a few more - looks eerily like the N2 scene!!! One surprising fact was that the single fledgling from that nest was seen in the area after the storm! Everyone was worried about it. Must be a homebody to have stayed so close to home so far. LOL!

A surprise inspection of a CITCO open-air oil/water separator resulted in convictions for Clean Air Act and Migratory Bird Treaty Act violations.  This case has been in the courts since at least 2007 and a Texas circuit court just tossed out the convictions, the appeals and the fines.  http://www.lexology.com/library/detail.aspx?g=f70dac63-e664-4103-a0fe-201c53e04755

Among the bird remains discovered were five White Pelicans, twenty (regular old) Ducks, two Northern Shoveler Ducks, four Double Crested Cormorants, one Lesser Scaup Duck, one Black-Bellied Whistling Tree Duck, one Blue-Winged Teal Duck, and one Fulvous Whistling Tree Duck.  In some circuit courts, this "take" is deemed a crime because it's a unlawful killing regardless of the cause.  But in this court and others, it's not considered a "take" because it wasn't intentional, like hunting.  IMO, this is a willfully ignorant interpretation of the Act and would decriminalize all such killings by a lawful commercial operation, like a wind farm.

The "take" issue may eventually have to be resolved by the Supreme Court, which could be years and millions of bird deaths away.  The USFWS is currently working on regulations for "take permits" for a variety of commercial operations (oil retention ponds), possibly including wind turbines and electric distribution and transmission lines.  Take permits allow a very limited number of unintentional killings but require reporting those takings and then mitigating the causes to prevent recurrence.  If the permits become law, the MBTA will finally have teeth and this nonsense will be stopped.

There is if big government will back off & let them have the duck back. There is no reason morally for them to have the duck when it is a retirement home & the people need something to occupy their time to watch it.  We have a hospital with a large pond that is home to ducks that people can watch during the day & people in cars can see when they drive by. The government is trying to make all of us bow down & give up all our rights. I SAY it is time to stop it or the government will be telling us we can't even watch the birds & animals that we enjoy so much now.

Good question!!!  Is an eagle nest considered to be "inactive" when eagles aren't there because the nesting season is over?  The answer must be "Yes" according to this Alaska construction company.

http://www.alaskahighwaynews.ca/regional-news/site-c/island-logging-prompts-concerns-1.2071250

T40 - please see the attached definition of an"inactive nest" by the USFWS:

A surprise inspection of a CITCO open-air oil/water separator resulted in convictions for Clean Air Act and Migratory Bird Treaty Act violations.  This case has been in the courts since at least 2007 and a Texas circuit court just tossed out the convictions, the appeals and the fines.  http://www.lexology.com/library/detail.aspx?g=f70dac63-e664-4103-a0fe-201c53e04755

Among the bird remains discovered were five White Pelicans, twenty (regular old) Ducks, two Northern Shoveler Ducks, four Double Crested Cormorants, one Lesser Scaup Duck, one Black-Bellied Whistling Tree Duck, one Blue-Winged Teal Duck, and one Fulvous Whistling Tree Duck.  In some circuit courts, this "take" is deemed a crime because it's a unlawful killing regardless of the cause.  But in this court and others, it's not considered a "take" because it wasn't intentional, like hunting.  IMO, this is a willfully ignorant interpretation of the Act and would decriminalize all such killings by a lawful commercial operation, like a wind farm.

The "take" issue may eventually have to be resolved by the Supreme Court, which could be years and millions of bird deaths away.  The USFWS is currently working on regulations for "take permits" for a variety of commercial operations (oil retention ponds), possibly including wind turbines and electric distribution and transmission lines.  Take permits allow a very limited number of unintentional killings but require reporting those takings and then mitigating the causes to prevent recurrence.  If the permits become law, the MBTA will finally have teeth and this nonsense will be stopped.

As a follow-up to the previous post, here's a legal summary that gives an overview of the consequences of the 5th Circuit's ruling. The article is aimed at business, not raptor lovers, but it generally gives a fair picture of what's next, none of it's good, though.

Migratory Bird Treaty Act: Question Of Unintentional ?Take? Primed For Potential Fifth Circuit En Banc Or Supreme Court Review

http://www.jdsupra.com/legalnews/migratory-bird-treaty-act-question-of-42665/

And from the same publication is this article from 2014 on the same subject. It's not as balanced as the latest piece because it claims, for no apparent reason, that issuing permits for wind turbine installations would be a "nightmare."

Two drastically different accounts of the same event - rescue of an injured bald eagle from a pond.  Note the citizen said it looked like another bald eagle was trying to pull the injured eagle out of the water.  I'm betting that's not the case.  ;)  More likely there were two combatants and one was able to fly away and one was not.  Should make a full recovery though!

I am heartsick over this news.  It was a fatal shooting this past Thursday, Oct. 8th, 2015.  I don't understand the part of that report that says the shooting was "self reported" - does that mean the shooter reported it to the Arizona Game and Fish Department?  I don't know, but the Arizona Game and Fish Department did a preliminary investigation, and the Fish and Wildlife Service law enforcement personnel have taken it over.

That news report says 70 California Condors are in a flock that roams the Arizona-Utah border.  That now needs to be corrected to say, 69 California Condors are in a flock that roams the Arizona-Utah border.   >:( :( :'(

Thanks, baz for gathering all the items together here. I saw Finn's post here about a week ago. I was shocked at first. Why would they cut a program that is working, so well-managed and imagined and has captured the public's attention? Money. Other priorities that also need funding from a woefully underfunded department. Not a good answer, but it's real and agonizing.  :(
Title: Re: Birds in the News
Post by: baziunc on November 02, 2015, 03:19:30 PM
T40, OM's statement about that (the link to that is part of my post) speaks to that money issue.  OM's money is not from public funds.

It's here... scroll down in the OM statement linked here to the paragraph titled, "Costly," and read about OM's funds being privately sourced.

Statement from OM:

Title: Re: Birds in the News
Post by: T40cfr403 on November 02, 2015, 05:11:33 PM
baz - The more I read up on this the more it's looking like a done deal.

The U.S. and Canadian wildlife services provide 50% of the funding for this project, by law and a Memorandum of Understanding between the U.S. and Canada, and are in partnership with many other entities for the remaining funds. This includes, of course, Operation Migration and their donors.

The Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership (WCEP) is, again, by law, an experiment. The FWS is required by law (there's a theme here that's stacked against OM) under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to evaluate the effectiveness of the Service's programs it is tasked with creating and managing. According to the Service's Vision Document, this experiment is costly and is not and will not meet the criteria established for the Eastern Migratory Population (EMP) reintroduction. Here's that citation:

"The recovery plan?s objective requires that any additional population be self-sustaining.  To quantify this, WCEP adopted a persistence-based criterion for the EMP.  That is, when in the absence of additional releases, the EMP has an acceptably small probability of going extinct over a mutually-acceptable timeframe (e.g., 50-100 years).  Although the details of this criterion
have not yet been fully defined, the EMP clearly falls short of this criterion.  Recent population models, conducted as part of the 2014 WCEP Structured Decision Making Process, predicted that, the EMP will be declining or extinct under all evaluated scenarios within 75 years.  It appears that, without substantive changes, the EMP is unlikely to meet the Objective."

So, FWS has to look at alternatives, which is what the Vision Document and the regulatory process is all about. What's not said is the presumed pressure being put upon FWS from Canada and its other partners, along with the national budgetary pressures.

The good thing about this whole process is that the entire focus is on the survival of the whooping crane. And it sure sounds like that's going to include well-established protocols in the future that have been successful in the reintroduction of birds like the California condor and peregrine falcon.

Here's a fact sheet on the WCEP as well as the Vision Document itself.

This is an editorial from the online paper, Fredericksburg.com, out of Fredericksburg, VA.

BAD

Two bald eagles were treated last month at the Wildlife Center of Virginia for gunshot wounds. Both had to be euthanized, including one found in the Quantico area.

The center in Waynesboro received an eagle from the Marine Corps base April 17 after it had been hit by a dump truck.

When it was X?rayed, metal fragments indicating a gunshot wound were found.

This past Monday, another eagle was admitted to the wildlife center after a state Game and Inland Fisheries officer found it at Carter?s Grove Planation in James City County. It had been hit with gunfire in the leg.

The bald eagle is the national bird and appears on the Great Seal of the United States. Under federal law, it is illegal to shoot one. The penalty can reach a fine of $100,000 and a year in jail.

If the perpetrators of these shootings are arrested and found guilty, they should receive the maximum sentence.

Thanks, T40!  I loved this wonderful story about the brothers finding and freeing that beautiful Bald Eagle from a hunter's trap in the woods!  That Bald Eagle sure was lucky that they came by and so successfully freed him.  WOO HOO!

Oh WOWOW, T40!  And what a gorgeous Bald Eagle!  Thanks for sharing the video of the brothers getting that Bald Eagle out of the trap in the woods.  I'm glad the Eagle was able to fly when they released him (as told in the accompanying news article).  What a lucky Bald Eagle that those two brothers came along when they did and managed to get the eagle free and released - though it looked like they could've been a little easier with him.  And the lovely Golden Retriever stayed mostly calm and well-behaved but probably scared the Bald Eagle like crazy, considering the eagle's trauma.  That Eagle must've been in a major load of stress!  These two young men did a wonderful thing.  I hope the Wildlife Office was able to contact the hunter who set the trap, as was mentioned in the news article.  P.S.  Hope you get your selfie with a Bald Eagle one day, too.   :D ;)   (But I hope it is not with a bird caught in a hunter's trap!)

Kay from SOAR releases a bald eagle!

A slow motion video of the eagle release on 23 November 2015. An adult female bald eagle was admitted from Greene County on 19 September 2015. Her vision was limited on admit, she had bumps and bruises, and was missing a few primary feathers. She received antibiotic eye drops and time in the flight pen. Her vision improved within a couple weeks and new feathers have or are growing in. Time to go...

https://www.audubon.org/news/two-brothers-and-bald-eagle-epic-selfie-or-epic-fail

This Audubon article may be technically correct, but using "epic fail" in the story headline is an overreach.  The two Canadians who rescued that trapped Bald Eagle saved its life.  They had good in their hearts and helped more than harmed.  Sure, the Eagle could've suffered sudden death from the stress, and could've needed treatment if had been taken to a rehabber, but it was surely going to die, and likely in some grizzly way, if it had not been found and freed.  Even trained rescuers and rehabbers have their pictures taken when rescuing and transporting and releasing birds and other animals.  The article is right to point out the proper way to handle finding a bird that is injured, but the writer could've found a lot more to gripe about the causes of injury to raptors, and missed an opportunity to use that rescue to point out the plight that raptors and other birds face, including being harmed and killed by baited traps.

The Redding Eagles have pulled a fast one on their fans and built an alternate nest. I feel for them! The Friends of the Redding Eagles had just raised $4,000 to upgrade the nest cam and now this happens. Checked their Facebook page and they've done this before. Heartbreakers!

Quote from FB page:

Friends of the Redding Eagles
December 5 at 12:11pm ?

With the news of the alternate nest being built by Liberty & Spirit, I want to let you know that we will still follow them through the nesting season & post as many photos & videos as we can!
The same thing happened here a few years ago when we had bought a new camera & TB installed it & then the Eagles built a new nest one tree over!
Mother Nature always knows best! That old nest had an unstable support branch that soon broke off & that nest eventually fell apart. So perhaps something didn't feel safe about their old nest?
Cottonwood Trees are famous for losing large limbs & that is their tree of choice in this area!
It will be more work for our Ground Crew to keep you all filled in this season, but we will do our best! We may need to recruit a few of you to help us out!
Kit & I took several photos & videos of them working on the new nest this morning & we'll post them soon!
Stay positive folks, they are both healthy & they are still close by so we can keep tabs on them!

T40 -- John Dingle told a story at Bob's celebration of life about Bob having John wear the hat.  He told John what to do but I don't think he filled him in on exactly what would happen.  Bob then grabbed the hat and rushed off to inseminate the female.  It was a pretty funny story.

This is from the FB page of Jack Molan, eagle photographer and Bering Sea ship captain. This is incredible!!

This is not what you think (maybe) we have all seen the classic swoop and snatch images of Bald Eagles grabbing fish. (Incredible as it is) This eagle was on our boat munching on a chunk of cod-fish he pulled out of our fish net. As he rose to take off I thought he would swoop up and away, but instead he came down along side the boat and close to me. He needed to wash his talons off. My camera was not fast enough to get any other shots (in my surprise). He flew along for second, dipping and shaking his feet, then lifted off still shaking off the drops....Please share if you like!

If You Accidentally Break the Law, Are You a Criminal?

This article is about criminal intent and irrelevant to the story they cite about a rescued woodpecker. All states need Good Samaritan laws to protect wildlife rescuers against criminal prosecution under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. I'm not too sure this woodpecker rescuer meets the necessary criteria though - she took the bird shopping and never called a rehabber for advice.

Thanks, T40.  I haven't read the first link you posted here yet, but I did read the 2nd one, and it is interesting that one of the theories (just a theory, mind you) about why the GBH population has declined so dramatically along the Maine coast is the possibility of predation by Bald Eagles.  I would wonder then if there was a large increase in the population of the GBH there back when the Bald Eagle population declined so dramatically due to the results of pesticide use.  We know the Bald Eagle population is rising dramatically in many places recently as it has so successfully rebounded from near extinction.  I would think there would be a change in the eco-balancing from that increase in raptor population.  Just thinking out loud.  LOL...  :D

Thank you so much for posting this, glogdog!!!  I have followed this California Condor recovery program for a while now - it is one big story.  I cried tears of joy reading this wonderful news of 35-year old AC-4's release to fly free again for the first time after 30 years of captivity and after producing 30 Condor offspring that were ultimately released to the wild.  AC-4 was captured in 1985 when he was about 5 years old and was one of the last 23 California Condors still alive in the entire world (that total of 23 birds included all wild and captive California Condors still alive at that time!), and played a major role in helping to keep his species alive today... so far...  Oh my gosh, I so hope he finds a mate and nests this year!!!  I hope he stays safe and flies free for many years to come!!!  They can live to be 60-years old.  I hope everyone will read about this and help these birds survive.  I'm so happy for this good news, and would have loved to have witnessed AC-4 soaring away, high and free, on his majestic 9-foot wingspan!   :-* :-* :-*

Very interesting story, T40!  Just goes to show you how strong the urge to procreate is in Bald Eagles!  They somehow persevere, and  keep going on and on year after year, despite repeated failures and losses.  This is an amazing BE family history!  Sad, too, about the many known electrocutions related to this Eagle family history, and noteworthy in light of the Decorah Eagles' history of fledgling electrocutions.  I don't know if I could bring myself to watch them this year, knowing the history, and the ominous reporting on the owls there this year... almost told as a foreboding.  But I will hope for them to have success here this year.

Thanks for the link to the story on the eagle trio, T40.  I've been seeing photos of that trio for awhile now on Facebook but not really any additional info except location and that it is 2 males and 1 female.  I know it's not unheard of to have a trio but I believe it's rare.  The only one I've read anything about was the one several years ago of 2 females and 1 male on Santa Catalina Island, CA.  I tried to find more info. about your trio, T40, but couldn't and I also could not access the webcam.  So, I was thrilled to see your link and learn more about this trio.  What an amazing story and what tragedy they've endured but still kept living their lives and carrying on.  I hope we learn how this season works out for them.

ginger, I had also read before about the interesting development of the CA Bald Eagle trio of 2 females/1 male that you mentioned.  It's interesting to read T40's post about the BE trio of 2 males/1 female.  Doesn't sound like the 2nd male in T40's post helped much other than with nest-building, from what I read.

The UK loves its songbirds and some have placed the blame for their steep decline on the sparrowhawk and other raptors. Not true! Loss of habitat is the culprit, as it is in most other parts of the world.

Opinion - Raptor predation not to blame for wild birds' decline

http://www.westernmorningnews.co.uk/Opinion-Raptor-predation-blame-wild-birds-decline/story-28461909-detail/story.html

This leaflet is supported by 18 voluntary bodies and addresses concerns about the impact of predation by birds of prey (raptors) on songbirds. It explains that the principal cause of songbird declines is more likely to be the intensive use of land for agriculture than predation by sparrowhawks. It suggests policies and practices which are needed to reverse songbird declines.

Way to go, Walnut Cove!!!  Sooooo many other towns could do better by following Walnut Cove's lead!

Saving California condors - How citizen scientists and biologists are working together to help the endangered birds

Attention, citizen scientists! The California condors need your help!

The California condor is a critically endangered species and the population is suffering from the effects of lead poisoning. By tracking the location and social behavior of the animals we can better detect early warning signs of the illness.

http://www.raptorresource.org/forum/index.php/topic,2047.msg454330.html#msg454330 

I am beyond angry about this!  I don't care how young this person is who shot and killed these 2 Whooping Cranes, he better get an active prison term out of it as far as I'm concerned... The story says the max he can get is 6 months, and I hope he gets sentenced to a good portion of that, and has to serve it.  Someone has to start having the guts to enforce such laws!  What good are these laws without enforcement?

Wow!  T40, that story is truly cray-cray!!!  I can't believe criminal charges haven't been brought yet!  Though I noted there is a criminal investigation in progress.  That's really too bad the company suffered so much malicious financial, physical property, and electronic/file/storage damage, but you have to wonder about any company hiring someone to run the whole financial side of a business and apparently not doing a thorough background check, or even verify the work/responsibilities represented by the person hired... At least from that news report it sounds to me like there was a major lapse in that regard.  Bet that company uses a different process when they hire in the future!!!

Thousands of birds found dead along Alaskan shoreline

Sad news - article is about the common murres, most found emaciated with death due to starvation from lack of food, which are mostly a type of fish that lives in a narrow temperature range and probably not found in high enough numbers this year due to the water being too warm for those fish... said problem first noticed starting this past August and 100,000 common murres estimated died since then from starvation, and also said in this most recent count of dead murres that had washed ashore there on the tide in Whittier, a beach town along Prince William Sound, that the scientists "found close to 8,000 birds on a 1-mile long beach."

This is a new bald eagle nestcam in Pennsylvania. Included here is the short story announcing the live cam, a link to the Audubon's webcam page for both the Hays and Harmar cams, an alternate link through the local TV station for just the Harmar cam, and a story and video of the bridge implosion near the Harmar nest. Eagles are both OK!!

'Wildlife criminal' goes to jail for smuggling falcon eggs

http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2010/aug/19/wildlife-criminal-jail-smuggling-eggs

Quote:  Judge Christopher Hodson said: "I quote the words of a lord justice of appeal (Lord Justice Sedley) when he says, 'environmental crime, if established, strikes not only at a locality and its population but in some measure to the planet and its future'. I adopt these words to express the gravity of what you did. A substantial term of imprisonment needs to be imposed to punish you and deter others."

This handout photo taken on February 4, 2016 and released by the Philippine Eagle Foundation on February 8, 2016 shows a newly hatched, rare monkey-eating eagle at the Philippine Eagle Foundation's conservation breeding programme in Davao in the southern Philippines. The success of captive breeding of rare monkey-eating eagles in the southern Philippines has left the breeding facility scrambling for space, officials said February 8. Another eaglet was hatched last week, the second in barely three months, helping the giant bird's fight against extinction. PHOTO: AFP

LOL T40!  I love this about the male Bowerbird!  :D 

PBS recently aired another episode of the "Nature" series that, I think, also featured this tricky behavior exhibited by the male Bowerbird.  If it wasn't that bird, it was some tricky behavior by another bird, equally entertaining, used to "get his girl" to fall for him.  ;)  It was a really good episode, and included other animals that go to great lengths to use tricks for the same reason.    :D  What a hoot.   ;) 

That complete PBS Nature episode can currently be viewed online, (but NOTE*** it says that the video expires Feb. 28, 2016!!!) at:
http://www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/natural-born-hustlers-episode-3-sex-lies-dirty-tricks/13761/ - "Natural Born Hustlers - Episode 3 | Sex, Lies & Dirty Tricks."  Premiere date: January 27, 2016 | 0:52:58 | Video expires February 28, 2016

LOL T40!  I love this about the male Bowerbird!  :D 

PBS recently aired another episode of the "Nature" series that, I think, also featured this tricky behavior exhibited by the male Bowerbird.  If it wasn't that bird, it was some tricky behavior by another bird, equally entertaining, used to "get his girl" to fall for him.  ;)  It was a really good episode, and included other animals that go to great lengths to use tricks for the same reason.    :D  What a hoot.   ;) 

That complete PBS Nature episode can currently be viewed online, (but NOTE*** it says that the video expires Feb. 28, 2016!!!) at:
http://www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/natural-born-hustlers-episode-3-sex-lies-dirty-tricks/13761/ - "Natural Born Hustlers - Episode 3 | Sex, Lies & Dirty Tricks."  Premiere date: January 27, 2016 | 0:52:58 | Video expires February 28, 2016

Give it time to load...  It's an excellent episode!
[/quote]

baz - Yes, it was the bowerbird, but they left out the part about painting the inside red, which I thought was a very neat "trick." Thanks for the link; I enjoyed the episode.

Wildlife Officials Investigate Recent Bald Eagle Deaths

I have heard this theory before, namely that laws protecting bald eagles are contributing to their own deaths. I don't buy it. There's a much "tamer" version of the theory that's actually more in keeping with the original observations; bald eagles really do seem more accustomed to people now than in the past. There are all kinds of factors and limitations contributing to this observation, with nothing as nearly black-and-white as this article puts forward.

Yankee - I had posted a similar article in the "science" thread today, but there the author's of the research said the baby birds were tossed out of the nest because the adults had laid more eggs than they could raise. Hmmm. After reading it, I thought one of the best things the birds were doing for the alligators was attracting raccoons and wondered why that wasn't even mentioned. Too lazy to read the research paper, so I'll never know!  ;)

S.2637 - A bill to amend the Migratory Bird Treaty Act to clarify the treatment of authentic Alaska Native articles of handicraft containing nonedible migratory bird parts, and for other purposes.

https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/senate-bill/2637

Now we know!! >:(

Here's the stated purpose of the bill. Keep in mind, it's talking about bald eagle (and other migratory birds') beaks, talons and feathers.

"To amend the Migratory Bird Treaty Act to exempt certain Alaskan Native articles from prohibitions against sale of items containing nonedible migratory bird parts, and for other purposes." (Emphasis added.)

And here's the text of the bill: https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/senate-bill/2637/text

Finally, here's the "offending" paragraph:

"(2) CLARIFICATION FOR CERTAIN AUTHENTIC ALASKA NATIVE ARTICLES OF HANDICRAFT.-Subject to paragraph (3) and notwithstanding any other provision of this Act, nothing in this Act prohibits the possession, offering for sale, sale, offering to barter, barter, offering to purchase, purchase, delivery for shipment, shipment, causing to be shipped or delivered for transportation, transport, causing to be transported, carrying, causing to be carried, or receiving for shipment, transportation, or carriage of any authentic Alaska Native article of handicraft on the basis that the authentic Alaska Native article of handicraft contains a nonedible migratory bird part."

Speak up for swans at the Wisconsin Conservation Congress Spring Hearings

The topics of lead tackle and ammunition are on the agenda for Wisconsin's annual statewide Conservation Congress spring meetings. The meetings will take place in all 72 counties of the state on Monday, April 11, 2016, at 7:00 p.m. Each year, the events offer a chance for citizens to provide input on proposed changes to fish and wildlife regulations, elect Conservation Congress delegates, and introduce citizen resolutions.

The public input guides recommendations the Conservation Congress makes to the Natural Resources Board, based on voting results at the county meetings. The public is asked to vote on a number of questions.

Two of this year's questions have direct connections to lead poisoning in wildlife:

    #22 - Require non-toxic shot on all DNR-managed lands;
    #23 - Require non-toxic fishing tackle under 0.5 oz in weight.

At least six times in recent weeks, people have launched drones and harassed migrating geese at Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area.
...
The Game Commission also recently responded to a report of a drone flying close to the popular Eagle Cam nest near Hanover, York County. The drone and its operator were gone when game wardens showed up.

Thora the Bald Eagle from SOAR (Saving Our Avian Resources), who was named in honor of a man named Thor who died in Afghanistan, weighs about 10lbs and is approximately 5 years old. She is being treated for lead poisoning after ingesting leadshot from a deceased animal. The beautiful bird was on display during the Bald Eagle Watch at the Jester Park Lodge. Attendees could also use spotting scopes set up around Saylorville Lake to observe bald eagles in the natural setting and learn about our national symbol, view a Red-Tailed Hawk up close, and watch two rehabilitated Barred Owls released back into the wild.(Photo: Lee Navin / Special to The Des Moines Register)

At least six times in recent weeks, people have launched drones and harassed migrating geese at Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area.
...
The Game Commission also recently responded to a report of a drone flying close to the popular Eagle Cam nest near Hanover, York County. The drone and its operator were gone when game wardens showed up.

Someone is quoted in this article as saying Osprey live 5-10 years.  This one died at the age of 7 and he's described as "old" in the article.  Yet National Geo site says they can live 30 years in the wild and Cornell says 15-20.
