I went to the UK as a Commonwealth Scholar in 1990 and received my PhD from the University of Leicester in 1993. After three decades of university teaching, I retired to devote my time to the study of raptor behaviour. I am particularly interested in Ospreys and am working on a long term project on third hatch survival and siblicide in these raptors. My blog is a result of a fascination with my local wildlife and the desire to encourage others to love and care for birds! I live on the Canadian Prairies and prior to the pandemic travelled a lot. I am questioning the use of aviation fuel at the moment as we all strive to help our planet. My early research was in politics and art including British public statues exported to Southeast Asia and Vietnam Resistors that contributed much to Canadian ceramics. Books and articles were published on those subjects over a period of 3 decades. Now I am working on books for children so they can learn about the challenges our raptors face.

That definitely wasn’t an eagle on the wide cam, so not 17.
Thank you, Tavie. I did not think so either. I suspect that LB17 could be injured at the bottom of the tree or nearby.
Oh no! Mary Ann I just saw this. I saw the latest before this one. 16 bit little 17 as he was trying to move and caused him to fall off the nest. That is so sad.
Prayers he’s ok.
Well, 16 was never a friend to Little Bit. It is not really clear what happened but, you are correct. 16 did bite 17. And then Little Bit wanted to get away and well…I hope he goes into rehab and that the rehabbers come straightaway!
