It’s was so sad tonight to watch Jackie standing and looking at Cookie for the longest time. Just makes my heart ache. A mother losing a child, no matter the species, is so painful.

necropsy hypothermia they had that ground squirrel in the nest.

Be careful use gopher traps not poisons

At least seven eagles have died in areas along Maryland's Eastern Shore since March 1.Authorities believe they are being poisoned by a pesticide banned since 2009.The poison is passed through the food chain to the birds when they scavenge dead animals.

Wildlife police say bald eagles are dying at an alarming rate along Maryland's Eastern Shore - likely thanks to reckless landowners who set out poison to kill foxes, raccoons and other "nuisance" animals.

Six eagles were found dead March 1 in Kent County, near the Chesapeake Bay on the northern end of the Delmarva Peninsula, according to the Maryland Natural Resources Police. A great horned owl was also dead, and several other eagles were significantly sickened.

Maryland officers as well as agents from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have since found several other dead eagles in the same area, and three seriously ill eagles were found about 45 miles south in Talbot County on April 3. Two of those were treated and are in stable condition, but one died at the scene. The eagles were scavenging on the carcass of a red fox.

All the dead and sickened eagles showed signs of ingesting poison. The illegal chemical carbofuran, a pesticide that killed millions of birds before it was banned in the U.S. in 2009, has been confirmed to have poisoned at least some of the bald eagles, Natural Resources Police Lt. Roy Rafter told the Associated Press. Police think old stocks of the pesticide are being used to kill foxes and other farm pests. The eagles, in turn, are poisoned when they feast on the dead animal's remains.

Thirteen eagles were found sickened under similar circumstances in the same region of Maryland in 2016.

“At best, it’s reckless, and, at worst, it could be a deliberate crime,” American Bird Conservancy President Mike Parr told the AP.

Parr added: “It’s tragic. It seems deliberate from our point of view.”

Maryland Natural Resources Police are offering a $10,000 reward for information that helps solve the case.

“It is hard to believe that not one person has information of persons placing a toxic poison that has killed no fewer than twenty eagles in these areas," Fish and Wildlife Services Agent Jay Pilgrim said in a press release. "The only way this stops is if the local communities come forward with information.”

Bald eagles are no longer listed under the Endangered Species Act, but they are still federally protected by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act. Maryland's Eastern Shore is an especially favorable habitat for the birds.

“That’s like bald eagle central,” Parr told the AP. “This area is hugely important for bald eagles in the Lower 48 (states

An interesting video about eagle chick feather length.


What doesn't kill me does NOT make me stronger. It makes me anxious, bitchy, and vulnerable...but nobody wants to see that embroidered on a pillow...Lisa Kogan...thx LXL...sorry i stole it from you! Ok, maybe I'm not sorry :-P

It looks like Cookie has crumbled away enough we don't have to look at it anymore.

Don't blame me! I was left unsupervised!

I saw this eagle in a tree near the lake in Fawnskin this afternoon. Given the proximity to the nest and the fact I don't see any brown in the white feathers, it's gotta be Jackie.

My mom worked for LAPD during the LA riots, and has since retired. Now my dad in his 24th yr with LAPD, is dealing with it. My heart breaks for the shop owners, they didn't deserve this crap. I hope they can recover somehow.
