Eaglet “Justice” at RF Nest tangles with fishing line


The little older than 5 week eaglet at the RF nest had a run in with some fishing line yesterday.  According to reports, he did swallow some at one point, but later coughed it up so mom could remove it (yay!).   It appears that the line itself is still on the nest.  At this moment, there is some water on the cam, so it is really hard to see what the status is, and whether Justice is still tangled in any way.  But wanted to report it since it continues to be of general concern.  Here are links to videos by MsO (thanks!) showing the events yesterday:

  1. People just won’t learn that they must clean up after themselves. It is not that hard, my 5 yr old grand daughter goes along the creeks and river picking crap up. I sure hope everything is alright at the nest

  2. Wow Twizz, that’s scary. With the stop and start of the video, I couldn’t tell when/where he coughed up the line….I’m just glad he did. I hope it doesn’t continue to call further problems. I wish fishermen would be more aware of the problems fishing line causes to our wildlife.
