Must see! Must read! Must click!   Don't miss the glorious photos (thank you, Neil?) or Neil Rettig's account of how he became involved in helping to save the National Bird of the Philippines, the majestic Philippine eagle.

ABS-CBN Corporation is a huge Philippine media conglomerate and this appears to be a major public relations push to publicize the Philippine eagle's fight for survival.

The great thing about this, is that the eaglets were very feathered out and you could see them slowing themselves down by flapping on the way down.

The oldest, banded eagle in the wild killed by car at age 38. Originally from Minnesota, became part of New York's eagle restoration program. RIP

Yes, this could work! And eagles may need it sooner than later if Congress has its way and bans enforcement of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Idiots.  http://www.wired.com/2015/06/using-news-reports-track-wildlife-black-markets%E2%80%A8/

This is a remarkable follow-up to a previous story! A new female has begun to help the male take care of 2 nestlings after their mother was electrocuted. I want to say that's pretty fast work, but who knows?!  ;)
