It is thought Rachel injured her leg and her foot due to a Bald Eagle attack. Every morning they seem to be fighting the Bald Eagles and on and off all day, too.
This whole thing has been really rough. We were all on Owl watch overnight, again, last night. I was so close to a panic attack all night. At around 3:30am, I believe, Rachel started alerting. Scared me to bits. I was terrified to look, at all. But it was just an alert. I also have a feeling there was really something there.
Here is a clip of that.
Last night, just at dark, someone set off a whole lot of fireworks which may scare the Owl away. And now they are playing a recording of Dr Bierregaard giving a talk which is a very interesting one and I will post that talk too.
Dr Bierregaard giving a talk about Ospreys and about Hog Island and Rachel, too. I suggest anyone interested in this nest, listen to him. He's very dedicated.
