Rescued Bald Eagle In Virginia Stuns Audience Seconds After Being Released Into Sky – ‘Murica!

Published

I love bald eagles. In Idaho, up around Coeur d’ Alene, we would go watch them in January at the lake where they went to breed. You would see dozens of them there and they are magnificent in the wild. People come from all over the world to photograph them there. I’ve also watched them in Northern Nevada in Carson City where they feed. They are a very big bird and I would not want to get attacked by one, but they are a hoot to watch. I can certainly see why they represent America. They fly free, are aggressive hunters and they strike you as a majestic.

In Virginia, a bald eagle was found alongside the road badly injured earlier this year. It has now been released back into the wild where it belongs and can roam free once again. The eagle was tenderly cared for at the Wildlife Center of Virginia for five months and last week all that love and caring finally paid off big time.

A ton of people of all ages and walks of life gathered in Albemarle County to watch the good-as-new, healed bald eagle be set free to soar the skies once more. The audience was stunned seconds after the eagle was released as it soared majestically like a champion into the trees. Ed Clark who is the co-founder and president of the center called the eagle’s progress nothing short of a miracle. “When she came in she was badly, badly beaten up,” he said. “But she’s a tough bird and a strong bird.” The bird came to them with bruised lungs and a drooping wing. She must be strong because many that are injured like that never recover. She had no trouble taking flight when she was set free into the 525-acre Walnut Creek Park.

She now joins a record number of bald eagles in the state of Virginia. The bald eagle is the symbol of America’s strength and freedom. They have been brought back from the brink of extinction thanks to widespread conservation efforts. It is illegal to hunt them or disturb their nests.

Bald eagles nest in the winter and their habitats in Virginia stretch from the Richmond area to the Chesapeake Bay. They are doing well in Virginia now. They bounced back from near-extinction in the 1960’s. The pesticide DDT tainted the fish they ate and killed many of them. In the 1970’s, there were approximately 20 nests in Virginia. Now, there are more than 1,000 Virginia nests. “I don’t think we’ve seen these kinds of numbers since Colonial times,” eagle expert Bryan Watts said.

Eagles are no longer covered by the Endangered Species Act. But they are protected by other federal laws. There are two eagles, Virginia and James, who have nested on or near Williams Island in the James River since the mid-1990s in Virginia. In recent years, two other nests have been discovered near Richmond on an island near the Boulevard Bridge and in South Richmond near Stony Point. Even more eagles nest in nearby counties, and overall, the James River eagle population represents one of the nation’s strongest areas of recovery.

Today, about 20 percent of nests are in backyards and other places near people. That’s a good sign for the long-term health of the eagle population. Wherever I have seen them, they are totally fearless and take little notice of humans hanging around. And bald eagles do not always have the white head that people so readily identify them with. Young bald eagles look quite different. They start off a chocolate brown and become a mottled brown and white in their second year. They don’t get their striking adult plumage until their fifth year.

Bald eagles also aren’t that picky about food. They’ll swoop in and catch a fish from a river or lake. But they will also eat roadkill or available food left out. And in Northern Nevada, they congregate to eat the afterbirth from cows. Gross, I know… but a fact of nature. An eagle in Virginia can weigh up to 12 pounds and spread its wings 7 feet wide. A nest, which the occupants keep enlarging over the years, typically is about 5 feet in diameter and sometimes can reach 9 feet wide and 15 feet deep while weighing 2 tons. I’d hate to have that fall on me or anything I valued.

Bald eagles are fighters. They will fight over a mate, a nest or territory. So, they aren’t what you would want for a pet. But if you are into photographing predators in the wild, the bald eagle is a great experience. I have pictures on file from Northern Idaho that are just spectacular. I am thrilled that this bald eagle recovered and was set free in Virginia. Watching them lifts your spirit and sense of freedom. A bald eagle will live for twenty years or so in the wild and I hope this female has a nice long life after all of this. They didn’t say how she got hurt, but I assume she was hit by a car. It happens and the car probably sustained more damage than the bird. This bald eagle will live to fly another day and that is great news for her and all of us.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
