If this is not an Omen I've never seen one. 13 dead Eagles, 13 original colonies...


Federal wildlife authorities and a group of nonprofit organizations are offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to a conviction in the deaths of 13 bald eagles found Saturday on a Caroline County farm.

But despite that offer, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service spokeswoman Catherine Hibbard said it's still not clear how the birds died or whether a crime was even committed.

Though no longer considered an endangered species, bald eagles are protected by federal law.

Federal agents were heading to the scene Monday to investigate further, Hibbard said. The bodies of the birds were to be sent to a forensic lab in Oregon for analysis.

"It's definitely of concern," Hibbard said.


The 13 deaths were the most in a single die-off of bald eagles in Maryland in at least 30 years, Thomson said. The next-largest incident involved eight birds in the 1980s.
