Two injured bald eagles freed from storm drain

Two majestic injured bald eagles were freed from a storm drain on Thursday in Orlando, Florida after tying up traffic for hours at the intersection of Goldenrod and Curry Ford Roads. According to NbcNews, the birds of prey were spotted when one bald eagle had its wings spread out over the other one.

Initially observers thought the one eagle was protecting his mate, however Dianna Flynt from the Audobon Center for Birds of Prey dispelled the rumor. In fact, Dianna stated the birds had probably been fighting with each other when one entered into the other’s territory – a common phenomenon during mating season.

“What we have is a fight going on, and they fight unbelievably to the battle but hopefully not to the death,” stated Dianna.

The bald eagles had likely started fighting with each other while in flight when they became stuck together, and then plummeted into the drain. The first task was to separate the birds, but fortunately Mother Nature helped out on that account when the bald eagle on top was able to fly away after approximately one hour. The injured eagle will be transported to the Audobon Center for Birds and treated. It is hoped he will be able to be returned to the wild. His condtion has not been released.

    Please everyone – stop using the term Mother Nature. Mother Nature, Mother Earth and Earth Mother are pagan, Satanic names for the goddess Gaia. The Holy Bible – God’s instruction manual for our lives – tells us that there is a real living and breathing demon behind every false idol/false god. There is no Mother Nature. There is only Father God. Using those terms is a slap in God’s face. It is absolutely blasphemous. We should never insult God.

      MOTHER NATURE, MOTHER EARTH. We shall use what we wish, dear. ENOUGH with the zealotry. ‘Father God’ has no business in either this discussion or politics.

        Father God has a place in every area of our lives. God created everything so he gets to make the rules. I assume you are one of the “you can’t tell me what to do group”. Everyone who reaches the age of accountability (knowing right from wrong) makes a choice in life to be a child of God or a child of Satan -whether they realize they are making this decision or not. One day we all will have our souls required of us. When we stand before Almighty God we will see who’s the boss.
