Injured Eagle at the Capital - Sign?

  1. Injured bald eagle found in nation’s capital - July 2, 2017

    "It was unable to fly and appeared lethargic. It also had labored breathing. ... The Washington Post reported that it’s highly unusual to find an injured bald eagle within the District."

    The eagle is the symbol of America. On top of that, to find an injured eagle just before that nation's birthday. It seems too coincidental to dismiss as a coincident.
     
  2. The east coast of Canada (Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, etcetera) capture and rehabilitate many injured bald eagles every year. A lot of these birds when they get into city areas usually suffer from window or building strike injuries. It is actually a lot more common than most people realize, however the fact that it should happen in your nation's capital on Independence Day does not seem like the most auspicious of omens (if one wished to interpret this event in this manner).

    The real omen would be the follow-up on the bird - did it get rescued, was it rehabilitated and if so, was it successfully released? I would think that if one wanted to see this as an omen, seeing this animal healed back to full health and released back to the wild would be a wonder 'sign'. Unfortunately, a lot of these rehab cases can take a long time - some up to a year.
     
  3. We shall see... it's on it's way to a facility in Delaware I think.
     
  4. Being a birdwatcher and lover of eagles I am glad they could rescue and hopefully treatment will bring this creature back to health. And since it happened where it did when it did it is a wake up call to me and I am reminded of this scripture: 2 Chronicles 7:14.
    "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (NIV)
    Thanks for sharing.

  5. The workers in DC are probably more lethargic and sicker than this bird. That entire city needs to return to God.
