When a beaver fells a tree a diversity in nature will emerge, but when man fells a tree not much good will come of it.

Iroquois county eaglet (June 16, 2012). The bird looks to be as big as the adult and is starting to get an impressive wing span that it stretches on occasion and floats just above the nest. The bird has been sitting on the edge of the nest and will soon be branching (“a small hop and lift onto the closest branch”). Another step closer to becoming fully fledged.
