The Eagles and Allies Have Landed

White-tailed Kite (Elanus leucurus) by Margaret Sloan

Finally, the Eagles and Allies have arrived and landed back on their Family Page. The Accipitridae – Kites, Hawks and Eagles family album has been giving me a fit. As you know from the last two post, An Apology, Plus Much Work At Hand and Rounding Up Those Eagles and Allies, I have been trying to fix 111 broken links on the page that lists the whole Accipitridae family.

WordPress is a great Blogging provider, yet, there are times a blogger feels like pulling their feathers (hair) out. After searching the forums and the internet for possible answers, there doesn’t seem to be a clear answer as to how 111 photos disappeared from the Media area. Many were downloaded back in 2011 through 2016, and have been working fine.

Life is like this at times. Problems arise out of nowhere, yet, how we handle them, is a test of our character. Thankfully, we have the Lord to lean on when we need wisdom. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Proverbs 1:7 KJV)

Not so sure my “faith” is being tested, but the following verses are always a comfort when I am faced with challenges. Also, maybe, I am being challenged to review and rework parts of Lee’s Birdwatching Adventures. It is coming upon 10 years old after the New Year, and often items need to be repaired and painted. Even the birds go through a renewing of their feathers. Praying for the Lord’s wisdom on this issue.

“Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” (James 1:3-5 KJV)

What else is there to show you today, but some of the rest of the birds that returned. Thankfully, most of the Family pages do not have such enormous clans of relatives.

Rounding Up Those Eagles and Allies

“For thus saith the LORD; Behold, he shall fly as an eagle, and shall spread his wings….” (Jeremiah 48:40 KJV)

Yesterday, you were informed of 111 broken links on the Accipitridae – Kites, Hawks & Eagles page. Today there was a little bit of time to start rounding up those flying rascals. Now, there are only 60 birds still soaring around. Trust that they can be corralled soon.

In Lakeland, Florida, they round up the Swans on Lake Morton this time of the year. They are in the process of doing again now. See Lake Morton Swan Roundup – 2016. That is what I feel like I am doing with these broken links. So far some of the problems have been my fault, some have been photos moved around on other sites, etc. Stay tuned, I’m on the trail of these Accipitridae beauties.

“Doth the hawk fly by thy wisdom, and stretch her wings toward the south?” (Job 39:26 KJV)

I’ll be happy when these birds quit stretching their wings and stay in the media cache of this blog. Here are some of the ones that have returned to help fix their links:
