Chapter 9 - Phoenix Memorial
Hatched: Apr 29, 2010              Death: Jul 14, 2010


Doug and Sheila Carrick, the Hornby Eagle Group and friends, are shocked and saddened to report the sudden collapse and death of our beloved Phoenix. A rescue effort was underway, but the eaglet's decline was sudden and swift. We ask that you remember Phoenix by supporting the work of rehabbers all around the world. The work they perform is invaluable to the health and welfare of all wildlife. We love you Phoenix, and we mourn with Mom and Dad Hornby.  




Phoenix takes last breath and dies
We will miss you dear one!
Jul 14, 2010, 7:19 p.m. Nest Time

The members created so many nice screencaps and videos. Smiley It was very, very difficult to narrow it down to just do some highlights to tell the season's events.

You should all be proud of yourselves and what you have so generously shared.  love

(  You many comment here, and thank you for waiting until it was complete)
