'Intruder' kills second eaglet; Patriot unaccounted for

Wildlife News

A second eaglet at Turtle Bay cracked its shell and emerged under its mother, Liberty, around 10 a.m. Friday.

But, while Liberty was away, another eagle — one called “the intruder” — landed in the nest and killed the chick just before 1 p.m., eagle watchers said.

“I was just screaming, ‘No, no, no,’” said Wendy Dugas, who watched the ordeal on the Turtle Bay Exploration Park’s Eagle Cam. “I sat and watched, screaming for a while, ‘Why didn’t Liberty come back?’”

Environmentalists Sigh with Relief as BC Liberals Back Down from “Forest Giveaway Bill” to expand Tree Farm Licences (TFL’s) on

Wildlife News


Ancient Forest Alliance, March 12, 2013

 

 

Environmentalists are rejoicing today after the BC Liberal government backed down from its plans to pass enabling legislation to give greater property rights for major logging companies in British Columbia by expanding Tree Farm Licences (TFL’s). Earlier today Forests Minister committed to delete Section 24, the so-called “Forest Giveaway Bill”, from Bill 8, an omnibus bill of miscellaneous statute amendments, after facing huge pressure from concerned citizens through a campaign spearheaded by Independent MLA Bob Simpson and BC environmental organizations. The deletion will occur tomorrow during the committee stage of Bill 8. See MLA Bob Simpson's media release at: http://www.bobsimpsonmla.ca/independent-mla-calls-for-public-inquiry-into-forest-policy/

The big mama shoots me a death glare – her scowling amber eyes never leave mine as three little puffballs tuck into her chest.

You can’t sneak up on an owl, and this one is probably aware of every conversation and keyboard clack in the building where she’s made her home.
