Alaska hunter faces off in court with woman who sprung his traps.  Remember this story about a woman who rescued a bald eagle from traps and then sprung the rest of the traps?  Well, the trapper is suing her, of course.

What a terrible story!  A mature female bald eagle died, the trophy photo is disgusting and it doesn't sound like the power company is going to do anything about it.   >:(

Thousands of birds abandon eggs, nests on Florida island. What' going on here?!!!

http://phys.org/news/2015-07-thousands-birds-abandon-eggs-florida.html

Here are the theories but we'll never know why this happened. At least most of the birds were able to establish new nests on a nearby island.
