Default Tribute to Mother Eagle

For those of you who watched the pair of blad eagles raise their eaglets in 2010 and 2011 in Norfolk, Va., I've enclosed a video tribute to the female who was killed by an airplane recently. She was a magnificent mother and a joy to watch. I miss her.
The three eaglets are being raised in a wildlife center. See below.

Thank you for sharing that. I've been watching her for the last couple of years. So sad.

And he will lift you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of his hand.

What a beautiful and moving video. I don't know how you did this, but I'm sure glad you did. You deserve an award and a hug. (((duffysmom))) That is one of my favorite songs. Thank you so very much. Very beautiful.

bk, I didn't produce the video; it was on the site that has the eagle cam of the three eaglets.

They appear to be thriving and will be fledging (flying) soon. I also saw a video of the male returning to the nest after the female was killed and the eaglets taken to the wildlife center. It was so sad, he appeared to be dazed and kept looking for his mate and eaglets but the nest was empty. So sad.
