A legend has pass away, I remember a few years back watching videos of her at the beach she was having a ball. The streatch of beach would be closed for a few hours so Harriet & some of the others could enjoy the sun and cool off.

Harriet, Wabasha center's oldest eagle, has died :sorrow:

WABASHA — Harriet, the oldest eagle at the National Eagle Center in Wabasha, has died. She was 35.

Harriet came to the center in 2000. She had been hit by a car and was rescued, but because of her injuries she couldn't be released back into the wild.

"For more than 15 years, Harriet was a steadfast part of the National Eagle Center experience, inspiring thousands of people each year," Center Director Rolf Thompson said.

She got her name after local students were asked to write an essay about a famous American. A first-grader wrote about famed Civil War-era abolitionist and humanitarian Harriet Tubman, and the eagle got her name.

As an eagle ambassador, she traveled to New York and Los Angeles, and in 2007 she appeared in Washington, D.C., to celebrate the removal of the bald eagle from the endangered species list.

Harriet was hatched in 1981 in a nest in Vilas County, Wis. and was leg banded as an eaglet. When she was hit by a car, the man who rescued her was the same one who had banded her.

She had a distinctive feather tuft on her head because of scar damage from the collision. Her image was used on the state's Support Our Troops license plate.

Harriet was retired in 2015 because of age and arthritis. She couldn't eat in the past several days and couldn't get her medications. On Wednesday, the bird was taken to The Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota where she was euthanized.

"We believe the kindest thing to do was to keep her from a painful end and let her die peacefully in expert care," Thompson said.

Wild eagles generally don't live for more than 25 years, he said.

A video of Harriet's life is available on the center's web page, http://www.nationaleaglecenter.org.

Great story about a military vet who rescues an eagle who had been dangling from a tree for 2 days. The vet shoots the rope that had entangled the eagle to sever it!

Bald and Golden Eagles at Risk
New rules proposed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will not adequately protect Bald and Golden Eagles.

The agency charged with protecting America’s birds and wildlife issued new regulations that will grant wind companies 30-year permits to kill Bald and Golden Eagles—with virtually no proven mitigation options available to protect eagles and no real oversight of the wind industry’s efforts to mitigate eagle deaths.

Please send your public comments to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service today to oppose these 30-year permits. You can send the sample comments below, or edit with your own words for even greater impact. The deadline to comment is July 5.

NOTE: Your name and address will automatically be added to the bottom of the letter and your comment will become part of the public record

:cryinggirl: They are closing the case


Mystery remains in case of 13 dead bald eagles on Maryland’s Eastern Shore
Ed Clark, president and founder of the Wildlife Center of Virginia, said he is confident federal investigators “diligently tried to identify the culprits” and “gave it their best” in the case. He said it is likely someone has stored an insecticide that is now banned from the market and used it. But tracking records of who might have bought such banned products is tough, experts said.

Someone “sprinkles this stuff,” Clark said, “and it becomes a toxic time bomb.”

Life @ 99 in New Harmony, In!!! Thought you all would get a kick meeting Juanita who will be 100 in January. I met her through my work, because until a couple months ago she drove one of our ladies (sadly, no longer with us) to church every Sunday. Then she would eat dinner with us after church ... if we were having gravy! She continues to eat with us (but, stops by on Saturday morning to make sure we are having gravy for Sunday dinner) and came to ask me if she could take some of the ladies on her golf cart to the festival down the street just now. She's always "dressed to the nines" and I saw her come in from church one Sunday and slap her hand on the first table of ladies she came across in the dining room and announce " I'm just getting in from church and I'm coming off a hard drunk!" :teehee: She really puts things in perspective for me as she is 40 years older, no cane, no walker, still dancing ... but, I'm the one having difficulty rising from a chair!

Dancing!

99th birthday celebration last January!
