      That is only one of the faults of the news media, their disgusting narrative of reporting on the worst aspects of life in America. If an issue is not juicy and ripe with a racial slant, a obnoxiously stupid point of view, or a drooling exclamation of biden......then it is not print worthy. And especially if it is in any way favorable to a conservative principal, forget any mention. But if a story reflects the claimed racism of this country, it will be glorified to the point of American ruination !

        I don't know if you heard but CNN admitted to hyping up Covid and wishing for more deaths. And after Covid their going to do the same with climate change.

            I read that same article Danbo, and CNN was even openly being proud of their part in electing the present regime, openly proud of news reporting that was biased to the point of being purposely wrong in favor of ‘whats his face’ ! And now they are doing the same damn thing with their reporting on the GA vote legislation, giving false information as to its content, and covering for whats his face also repeating the same lies. Try winning a presidential election in the future with the LSM with its foot on the throat of truth !!!

              AND!!!.... per Lester Holt, "fairness" is no longer presenting both sides of the story and allowing the reader to determine the truth, but presenting what the journalist WANTS the public to believe!

                  Eagles pair up and will reuse the nest as long as they can. Each year they add to the nest and make repairs. Some nests can weigh a ton, The deep center of the nest is decomposing nest material and in the winter I believe is exothermic, giving off a little heat to the incubating eggs. She has to keep them close to 100 deg. Here is a pic of two caught in a noreaster. He climbed on her back to give her more insulation eggs hatched perfectly. amazing birds.

                    The woods in my area seem to have more barred owls than ever. I walk from 5:30 or so until dark four or five nights a week, in three or four different patches of woods depending on the day, and hear barred owls every single time. Got a pretty good idea right now of where two nests are, one of them pretty close to the logging road I walk. It's always neat to hear that "Who cooks for you" in the woods -- but holy cow, when you hear a couple of those birds up close, just a few yards into the woods, it's flat-out amazing. It's like you feel the sound hitting you as much as you hear it. They do a lot more vocalization than just that "Who cooks for you," too. Very cool birds.

                    I'd have to say that barred owls and bald eagles are the most common raptors in my area right now. I've only heard one redtail this spring so far, and seen no other species of hawks (though springtime usually isn't when I see most other kinds). I did hear a screech owl one night a couple weeks ago. Haven't heard or seen a goshawk in years. One time I had a nesting mother goshawk flying just overhead and screaming down at me as I walked through the woods. They're pretty fierce.

                      In Oswego County there are tremendous numbers of osprey. I've seen colonies of Osprey down in Long Island and in Florida, but in my old central NY country they were everywhere. Almost every cell tower has a nesting pair. I know two little league fields in different towns with ospreys nesting on light towers or transmission towers bordering the field of play. Great birds, they used to show up the first week of April. We used to have as many as 5 or 6 fishing the beaver pond at a time. Not as birdy here in Western Pa. I miss them.

                        I head up to Wellesley Island every summer, and ospreys are all over up there. The light post at the entrance to WI State Park has a nest on it.

                        Lots of flying squirrels up there on Wellesley Island, too. We were sitting around the bonfire one night and kept seeing little glints of light back in the trees. Finally figured out, flying squirrels!

                        And, of course, geese everywhere. Walking across the grass at the state park or marina is pretty much walking on a carpet of dung. Never realized how nasty geese are until I started going up there. Much prefer to see them at a distance.

                        One of the beaver ponds I pass on my walks here at home has some dead trees in the water, and a bunch of great blue heron nests. They've been there the past four or five years, at least. There are at least a dozen nests total, on four or five trees in a four-or-five acre pond. One tree has four nests on it alone.

                        Would you call a great blue heron nesting site a "rookery" like you do with crows and ravens, or is there another name for it?

                          I've had Great Horned Owls nesting in Great Blue Heron nests on my beaver pond. I used to cross country ski by them in February when they nest. Heronry is a heron rookery, a nesting colony of herons.

                            The American Eagle Foundation in Dollywood Tenn. Dolly Parton is a big supporter of the Eagles. The AEF Dollywood is the home of retired Challenger. Challenger is the Eagle that flew at ball games and traveled to schools. He is now about 30yo.

                              The three bald eagle chicks in the Hays nest are huddled up this snowy morning. Not much insulation on their downy bodies.
