    Rube' at the Eagle's Nest! (with pics!)


    RubenX @ Eagle's Nest


    No BS, there's the eagle








    ...and the wings are *THIS BIG*


    Eagles are bigger than this huge owl


    ...bigger than this hawk...


    ...and could eat this cute birdie for breakfast

    For a moment, I thought that Rube was in the German Alps.

    I learned that kids hold onto Daddy with a force that equally proportional to the inverse of the distance from a bad-ass bird of prey.

    That eagle looks pissed but from the looks of the shackle on his leg he'll eat no Rube nuggets today.

    Thanks for the photos Rube.

    Oh yes they look mean. Some are injured wild eagles that are kept here while their injuries are treated, then released back into the wild... those are really pissed. They look at you, look at the shackle, look back at you...

    Most people get eagles for granted just because it is the national bird. But a few decades ago, we almost lost them. Thanks to programs like this, we now have thousands of them.



    That video was last year. As of now it seems that we (Florida) are 2nd place in eagle population, with Alaska still strong on 1st place.

    Well Rube, you look so unlike a Puertoricano. More Cuban I would say. Parent(s) from Cuba?

    Most likely he is decendent of the Spanish commerce brokers who used that funny skull+crossbones ship flag who used to hang around those islands.

    Birds of prey know they're cool. (Borrowed from the Far Side)
    Flying a jet is no different than riding a bicycle. It's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.

    We have a few nesting pairs near me on the south shore of Lake Erie.They're usually out in the morning and late afternoon eating fish along the shore and tend to nest farther inland.

    Sure wish the Rube would post a picture of himself holding one while feeding it some chicken.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Most of us are a mixture of Taino, Spanish (Spain) and Africans. No Puerto Rican is 100% pure Puerto Rican as the Spanish killed off most of the aboriginal (Taino) inhabitants on the island, the diseases they bought along with them finished of the rest.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    There are about six or seven breeding pairs within ten miles of here at least that I know of, B.C. doesn't need any of those American birds. It is not unusual to see the birds flying overhead anywhere in the city.

    So the Rubester stands corrected on the "100% PR" statement?You forgot the Portugal residents which inhabited the island for many years.

    PR has everything. It was a sea port where people going *to* America would meet with those *coming back*. "You are going to work on the railroad?" said one man with Chinese accent. "I'm returning from that, it sucks, better stay here and farm sugar cane".
