A bald eagle died last year in Maine. But it was found in NH. Ok which is it?

Clicked in hopes of seeing a helpful picture of what a loon might look like. Thread delivers what TFA did not.

It's kinda neat to think we might have some kind of major bird warfare brewing.

A robot had to write that. So many mistakes of every linguistic variety there.

We had a loon like that in school.
While the kid was a bit of softie, effeminate actually (he carried a hairbrush in his pants. Brush, not comb!) other kids did not mess with him.
We fought with fists to "win the fight". Not him. If someone tried to fight him he would do whatever he could to inflict damage, hit with whatever was closest to hand, including once a 2x4.

Hey, it worked for him.

Picture would be helpful here.  I have no farking idea what a loon is.  I think it's a duck like bird?  But it would add some gravitas to this story to give examples.  Is this a david and goliath situation?  I mean you hear about how badass great whites are, but if you said another fish killed it you'd think of a like your bluegill killing it, but in reality it's an orca that did it.

Without a reference this doesn't mean anything to me.  It could be another raptor for all I know.

It's basically a duck with a pointed bill.  That must have been the most surprised bald eagle in history.

Oh I googled it.  I'm just pointing out how lazily written this is.  It wouldve taken 30 seconds to grab and post from a stock photo place to give some sort of reference to the gravitas of the situation.

Don't mess with a Mama Loon, she will mess you up.

i grew up on a lake,.. spent my summers on the water,. was poking around in a swampy area one day and found a loon nest,. with loon. the loon got in the canoe with me. turns out those are FARKING BIG BIRDS.

anyway i got out of the canoe and decided i would go back for it after the loon was finished with it.

Oh I see. It's hard to tell on here sometimes whether someone is serious. Yes the article is incredibly lazy, everything about it is like an afterthought.

Got to use this next I'm in a bar (when ever the hell that might be), when the woman asks what do I do, "Well, I'm a loon biologist".  Should get lucky that night, for sure.
 
2020-05-21 8:35:34 PM  
The bird had been found with a puncture would in its chest by a loon biologist in New Hampshire.

It makes sense that a loon with a degree in biology would know the best place to stab an eagle.

I know of two dogs that have been attacked by loons while swimming. One of them bled out as it got back to shore. Those birds are mean.

'recently got word' of that July 2019 bird attack?... did the glaciers take over Maine again without anyone noticing?
