I don't know whether to celebrate Lucy's strength or mourn for her as an exploited female.

I need to clarify this comment.

In no way did I mean to imply that anyone is exploiting Lucy.  Far from it, Talon has done so much to keep Lucy supplied with food and has clearly sought the very best for her. He has also brought several lessons to his classroom - what an education these young people are getting!

I think the word I should have chosen is "stressed" rather than exploited.

In other times and circumstances, females who have been physically stressed - through injury or other circumstances - stop being able to reproduce. I am very surprised that the stress to Lucy's body has not caused her reproductive functions to shut down for this season - perhaps the stress  was not severe enough to overcome her innate biological need to reproduce(?)

Many thanks to Talon for keeping this project going and for keeping us all updated on Lucy's progress. May you and the eagles  "live long and prosper"

many thanks, talon!  :thumbup:  You are right -those close-ups are absolutely stunning!!

(I modified your post to show the video - what works is to use the YouTube "button" with just the identifier for the video (the part after the = )

Talon - thank you so much for those videos - amazing close-ups!  What a wonderful brave bird Lucy is, and seems to be coping so well in spite of her poor feet.  And Larry is an absolute gentleman for sticking by her so faithfully.  :heart
