Thanks for bringing the link to the story here, Mary. hug

One of the things mentioned in the article is that they have advanced predator protection in place, and they've not been able to find any breaches in the fencing and other barriers. They are also not sure at this point what sort of predator was involved in the attack,

They did say that there was "no evidence that any of the resident bald eagles were involved or injured in the incident" - which is a bit of good news. I was pretty sure I'd seen Derek, but wasn't sure I'd seen Savannah today.

This is all just so sad. :cry1:

Thank you for reporting this everyone. I am devastated as I followed this nest with all my heart.
It's just that no matter how to try to protect, sometimes you just cannot.
Many tears.......especially for Savannah and Derek and the CRC and especially all of you wonderful friends.

Choose joy.......
Since Sept 2009.

So very sorry for Savannah & Derek and all those who cherish this nest for this very tragic loss.
I only recently started following them last year but fully appreciate the opportunity humans have to help non releasable eagles lead full & fruitful lives and enable some to produce future generations returned to the wild.
My thoughts & heart go out to you all

Patience is a virtue I seem to be allergic to but nature's trying to change my mind daily.
