Very sad to say one of the baby eagles in North Fort Myers died overnight. It was the larger and first-hatched of the two. This is the last shot I got of the two of them, yesterday. The one on the left is the one that died..it was laboring in its breathing and not eating for the past few days.

That reminds me, a couple years ago we boated past a peregrine falcon nest, just before a storm, on Lake Superior which held two downy young. When we passed by again after the storm, only one remained, the other no doubt blown down into the big lake. So it goes, I guess.

True, Al, so it goes. Still sad though.

A few years ago I worked in a visitor center and we had an osprey nest just outside in a treetop. We had been watching two babies grow up all spring and summer and they would often be a main discussion point in our interpretive walks. One day, just after pointing the baby ospreys out to the visitor group, the mother osprey left the nest and flew out over the lake to hunt for her babies. About 15 seconds later, a bald eagle came from the other direction. It landed in the osprey nest, then picked up and dropped both baby ospreys to the ground, killing them. The eagle probably viewed them as competition for its own babies.

Sometimes the animal world can be as cruel if not more so than our own human world.
