Nest cam livestreams bald eagle parents feeding a cat to their eaglets

“While many may cringe at this, the eagles bring squirrels, rabbits, fish (and other animals) into the nest to eat multiple times each day,” the society said. “To people, the cat represents a pet but to the eagles and to other raptors, the cat is a way to sustain the eaglets and help them to grow.”


The cat should not have been outdoors. Who knows how many smaller birds and other animals it killed before it found its place in the food chain.

If you are a cat lover, please keep them indoors - for their sake and for the sake of all the other animals out there.

2. It's a wonderful thing when eaglets thrive.

The Hanover nest failed this year.

3. This is why my cats were indoor beasties

My tough city cat had her last trip outdoors the day I saw a hawk up in a tree watching her and licking its beak.
