Interesting to know how they keep that eagle in the Zoo.
I went to the Miami Metrozoo site hoping there is eaglecam, but found this - meerkat cam:

Here is a link to 100 days in Glacier National Park -- every day is a photo and almost all of them are lovely.

No nothing in the nests that we were able to locate...yet that is. This is the season that BAEAs tend to group together and are not territorial like they are during the nesting season.

Apparently, the water discharged from the hydroelectric plants turbines stir up the fish which makes it a prime location for eagles to dine on easy prey. The dam is located on an estuary of the Chesapeake bay on the Susquehanna River. Traveling Eagles do group up to feed during the winter

A video of a chimp at the cam.
It made me think of our moose at the cam.

Moving over from Seasons ..., about those rabbits in Stockholm:
(Hello, Alice - yes, they certainly were released pets)
One morning, in the early rabbit years, my car had to go to the workshop, quite far away, so very early start. The sun was very low yet, in my back. The road - street rather, it was in the city - went uphill. At the top 20-30 small, black, green-eyed rabbits sat, stood, lay around ... on the road, pavement, grass ... just staring at me.
A ground-level version of Hitchcock's The birds :shock: .

One mystery: how did nearly the whole population stay small, black, green-eyed for 10-15 years?
My friends' children have rabbits of all colours and sizes. These rabbits started off from at least 3 or 4 areas, can't imagine that just one kind was let loose. It must be easier for a bird of prey (or a dog, or other predator) to see a black rabbit against the mostly rather pale backgrounds in the city parks. Even allowing for a black-only start, their offspring should have had some different colours (Mendel's rules and so on). But only during the last few years brownish-beige ones appeared (clearly minority)

I found an article with a short video -- on the U Vic Bunnies. When my mom taught there in the early 70s there were no bunnies to my knowledge -- there was a flock of endangered (and now gone?) sky larks. From what I have seen their population is declining on the island and is gone from campus.

Alice,I just came on your article above.!! BIG problem they have there. :slap:
Have they found a solution ??
BTW do you remember me posting about a man who re-introduced bear cubs into the wild in Russia ?
Do you remember his name ? I have completely forgotten but would love to find it again. :slap: so if you know where I posted that do tell me.
