lF, i think they're all done now, but you never know. the owl attacks are scary! there was one recorded on the decorah eagle web cam, too.

Oh....thank you for posting the link! The owl attack is truly rough....predators will be predators, still, it's tough to watch...tougher to experience...I didn't catch the Decorah attack...yike...the chicks there seem unprotected when mom hunts...I only check in once a week, so I miss a lot. But, I've come to care about their survival. I know when I'm in Massachusetts and up at dawn...I listen to the morning routines of all the variety of birds calling out their territories. It may be a dog eat dog human world, but within the vast truth of the natural world, it's simply the way. i keep thinking about Mary Oliver...her poems...the way everything is the sacred truth of what is.

So exciting and amazing to watch. The woods are beginning to come alive with springtime activity here.
