I’m sorry, Will.

You are just as guilty here by bringing your political views online. That was not so much a political statement by Mark but a simple statement of fact. He didn’t use the dictionary-correct word for the group in question, but that group is indeed trying to destroy something that should concern birders everywhere and thus is quite appropriate on a birding listserv. I don’t think birders can sit by and watch our environment and all its protections taken apart piece by piece by the present administration.

>>> In reply to some who questioned the Bald Eagle sighting above the Women’s March in Seattle on the 21st, thinking they might have been drones, I was in attendance at the march (an awesome and inspiring event), and observed them clearly, circling directly overhead. I also photographed them with my cell phone and later examined the pics and video by zooming in. They were most definitely actual live birds, two adult Bald Eagles. Someone suggested that the collective heat of the 175,000 marchers created a thermal updraft which the birds then utilized. This seems reasonable, though an alternative hypothesis is that they showed up for a huge demonstration against the present anti-environment junta already actively planning the destruction of the Endangered Species Act…
