I fear these eagles were mates, and had they any eaglets, they would have died as well.

When I found the eagle I immediately saw that something was wrong. I called OWL, the raptor center in Delta, which sent someone to pick up the eagle. It would take another hour for OWL to get there. The eagle started coughing up blood and had trouble breathing. As soon as the eagle was put in the carrying crate to be taken to OWL, it died. Our rescue efforts had taken too long.
It was later determined the female eagle died of lead poisoning. OWL has received 11 eagles this year with lead poisoning. They were able to save eight of them. The female that was poisoned could have been saved had it been rescued earlier, or if the person using lead ammunition had used something lead-free. A male eagle hit by a car on May 2 suffered a broken leg and wing, and was found in the middle of the road. This would indicate a massive hit that killed the eagle instantly. Drivers in the forested streets of the Point should be aware that eagles use our roads to hunt as well, and might not see a car coming because of the trees along the edge of the street.
Eagles are expected to lose 70 percent of their habitat in the next 30 years, so places like Point Roberts are more important then ever. Bald eagles seem to be doing great to most people, but in reality they are losing habitat and being killed in many ways. In the last six months alone, 55 eagles have been electrocuted in the Fraser Valley.
Training and awaiting D-Day in England, Sam's can-do Yank confidence suffers the harsh realities of a war-weary nation under siege as well as a tyrannical platoon As the inferno of World War II engulfs st Airborne Division paratrooper Lieutenant Sam Henry, the scholar-turned-soldier is thrust on a collision course with the embodiment of beauty-and the horrors of combat.
Training and awaiting D-Day in England, Sam's can-do Yank confidence suffers the harsh realities of a war-weary nation under siege as well as a tyrannical platoon leader. His fascination with the beautiful British schoolteacher, Maggie Elliott, sustains his hopes and softens the bite of military life but cannot erase the dread of Sam's upcoming mission.
When that fateful day arrives, June 6, , Sam embarks on one of the most dangerous missions of the war. But the massive parachute night drop behind Hitler's Atlantic Wall disintegrates into pockets of fractured units and individuals locked in kill-or-be-killed close combat chaos, testing Sam's optimistic intellectualism to the breaking point.
WERE D-DAY’S AIRBORNE LANDINGS ALMOST ‘FUTILE SLAUGHTER’?
His personal mission becomes nothing more than getting his beloved men out-alive. Yet, with the D-Day airborne objectives nearly secured, an unforeseen clash against a Russian Front hardened storm trooper, Helmut Behr, threatens to destroy Sam's sanity-and his life. Varner's action scenes are fantastic he really brought me into D-Day. Get A Copy.

lighfanduca.tk Sort order. Jun 10, Sommer Huffmaster rated it it was amazing. Jon knew the author of this book, so it was a pleasure to dive into the heart of someone Jon knew really well in childhood. Also, the book on its own is fantastic, a great read for young adults onward, a little romance and some heroism, with a Christian worldview and discussion of why evil happens and what Is God's response woven in carefully but with subtlety.
Definitely an enjoyable read!! Sep 02, Jim Moore rated it it was amazing.
