Thanks, T40.  Dealing with taking the survey before being able to read the article is a pain, but it was worth it.  There is good info in this about the documented numbers of occupied Bald Eagle nests in Wisconsin in 2015 - there were 1,275 of them!!!

Bald eagles and eaglets and dive-bombing the Bush.  Nice first-person story out of Alaska, with a few minor errors in fact.

Controversy after scientist finds rare bird -- and kills it. That's their title, not mine. This guy is no scientist.

http://newsradio1310.com/california-condor-found-shot-in-northern-arizona/


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.   >:( :( :'(

Bird lovers fear annual Australian back yard count will detail species' decline. Not good.

Stunning moment, near Montezuma: Great birds in a great chase - http://www.syracuse.com/kirst/index.ssf/2015/10/stunning_moment_near_montezuma_great_birds_in_a_great_chase.html

WOW!!!!!  I would have had a car wreck for sure!!!   :o   Incredible story and can hardly imagine how his heart must've been racing to see that scene unfold before his eyes - all "out of the blue" like that.  This is a great story, and I'm so glad I read it to the end.  Wonderful info included, and LOL on the "No Fly Zone" between the eagles and the osprey on those waters at Montezuma.   :) :D  Thanks for sharing this story, T40!
