Petra Chlumecka reported the death of juvenile white-tailed #eagles from highly pathogenic avian #influenza #H5N1 in #Estonia. I discussed it with the responsible vet. 1/7

@VroegeVogels @GlobalFlyway…
I think this case may herald a new phase in the expansion of highly pathogenic avian influenza into wildlife. This infectious viral disease was historically restricted to poultry farms; an old name for the disease is "fowl plague". 2/7
In recent years, highly pathogenic avian influenza has spread to wild waterbirds. However, outbreaks in wildlife were restricted to mainly to autumn and winter, and had stopped altogether or were at very low levels by the time spring arrived. 3/7

Carson Wentz is leaving the #Eagles and heading to the Colts. We take a look at how the Birds got here and what could be next for the team in this thread.

First, inside why Wentz regressed so badly this season, from @Jeff_McLane:…
But sports columnist @MikeSielski argues that the reasons Wentz had to be traded run deeper than one lousy season.

"The Eagles should have understood Wentz better before betting so big on his greatness," he writes.…
And why the Wentz trade could be the worst in Philadelphia sports history. The Eagles used five picks to draft him in the first place and didn't get back as much as they gave up, writes sports columnist Marcus Hayes (@inkstainedretch).…

It's finally happened. The #Eagles are trading Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts. Here's our initial story from @LesBowen.
"The Eagles misread Carson Wentz as a person and a quarterback. This trade is the result of that failure," writes @MikeSielski.… Image

No ha sido tan movido como un mercado invernal habitual, pero nos ha dejado movimientos muy interesantes. Hoy es el #DeadLineDay, uno de mis días favoritos del año, por lo que voy a hacer un hilo con los fichajes más destacados en este mercado.

Spoiler alert: Es algo largo.
🎯Joakim Maehle. Del Genk a la Atalanta.

Los 11 millones que costó el danés, ya parecen pocos. Su llegada ha sido suficiente para que la Dea finalizase las cesiones de Mojica, Piccini y Depaoli.

Aprovecha cada minuto. Suplente de lujo para Hateboer y Gosens.
Luka Jovic. De Real Madrid al Eintracht.

Sin oportunidades ni la confianza de Zidane, el serbio ha vuelto a casa. Con Hütter sabe que tendrá que ganarse el puesto, pero de momento es un suplente de lujo: 3 goles en 4 partidos saliendo desde el banco. Reviviendo.

Thread: Why #Eagles Carson Wentz's newly adopted diet in 2019 has slowly led to his seemingly "out-of-nowhere" regression, backed by tons of historical examples. #FlyEaglesFly
[1/21] Carson Wentz, as reported back in August 2019 by @kracze, did a complete 360 on his diet with the help of his newly hired nutritionist in efforts to minimize injury. “He’s checked his man card at the door, and he’s gone all vegan,” Kracz said.…
[2/21] It is important to note that Wentz now operates as Gluten-Free and he has not 100% cut meat out of his diet. However, the avid hunter has changed his eating habits completely, and now focuses on eating green rather than eating lean.

Your Giants Eagles Week 10 game thread starts here.

Carson Wentz and Jabrill Peppers at midfield as captains.

Wentz calls tails, wins the toss, and defers.

Giants will receive the opening kickoff.

Must win.

Your @NYDNSports three keys to victory for the Giants…
Dion Lewis brings the kickoff out of the end zone and is tackled at the 15 yard line. Giants offense with a long way to go to start.

Giants inactives today are WR Dante Pettis, LB T.J. Brunson, OL Kyle Murphy, OT Jackson Barton and DL R.J. McIntosh.

So Golden Tate and Isaac Yiadom are both in the lineup after being questionable today. Will Hernandez returns (not expected to start).

#Giants #Eagles
Former Eagles 2nd round pick WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside among today's inactives for Philly.
A couple Giants insights:

- Team turnover is constant. On special teams, CB Corey Ballentine played 15 snaps last week & LB T.J. Brunson logged 12. Ballentine was released; Brunson is inactive.

- On O-line, Judge intends to rotate 3 offensive tackles & three guards thru game.

In 2018, the #49ers unveiled all-white throwbacks into the team's uniform rotation. It is a tribute to the 1994 #SuperBowl championship team.

Since then, fans have lauded this and called for the red version to return.

Here is the history of these uniforms.

Continue thread.🔽 ImageImage
These throwback uniforms originally date back to the 1955 #49ers team. That team went 4-8.

The helmet was red (with no logo) and silver pants were sometimes worn. The original white uniforms featured black stripes.

This uniform was only worn this season.

In 1994, the #NFL celebrated its 75th year. Teams were to participate in league-wide throwback uniform celebration beginning in Week 3. A commemorative 75th anniversary patch was worn by all teams.

For the first two weeks, the #49ers wore the standard set.

My Andy Reid play card story:

When I was in my first year covering the #Eagles, I wanted to do a story on Reid’s menu of offensive plays. So I waited until a Monday after a win to ask.

He had just done his presser and I sprung the idea on him.

“What do you need?” he said.

I took a gamble and asked if I could have one of his old cards.

“No,” he answered, “but follow me.”

Reid took me up to his office on the 2d floor of the NovaCare, walked me behind his desk and opened a large drawer full of files. He pulled one out, handed me a play card.

“There you go,” he said.

It was the card from the Eagles’ win over Dallas a few weeks prior.

“Can I have this?” I asked.

“No,” Reid said.

“Can I take a picture?”

“No. But look at it, remember as much as you can, and you use it without giving away the play calls.”

I can't stop thinking about the #Eagles' decision to draft WR Jalen Reagor over WR Justin Jefferson -- who went one pick later, to the #Vikings
Was it speed, like @MoveTheSticks suggested? I don’t think so.

Justin Jefferson: 4.43 forty-yard-dash
Jalen Reagor: 4.47 forty-yard-dash

So, why did one of the league’s most statistically-minded / forward-thinking GMs decide to take Reagor over Jefferson?

Roseman made this point very clear: Outside Separation

Per chi è nato altrove e fa il musicista, rientrare di notte a Los Angeles pensando che adesso quella è casa deve essere una sensazione stimolante. Ancor di più doveva esserlo a metà degli anni ’70.

La California era l’albergo più bello e LA la sua suite migliore.
Don e Glen, in macchina, imbastirono - chitarra e parole in libertà - questa canzone. Ma ci volle tempo e l’intervento della terza aquila e secondo Don della band per finirla e farla diventare un classico. Image
Hotel California è il posto migliore per vivere i propri giorni, ma è un albergo/carcere. Puoi fare il check out quando vuoi ma non puoi andartene. O forse non vuoi, dopo tutta la fatica fatta per arrivarci. E’ un posto misterioso, affascinante per via del suo lato oscuro. Image

Instant Round 2 Grades! Here we go! #NFLDraft2020

Starting with...
33. CIN - Tee Higgins WR9 ... C

My 44th overall player, I think there are better values & better WRs available.

I also would've gone OT here, unless an AJ Green trade is imminent.

Building around Burrow is a good move, though. #Bengals
34. IND - Michael Pittman Jr. WR12 ... D

I'm lower than many on Pittman - 53rd - I just think there are much better prospects at WR. Multiple are still on the board: Laviska 21st, Mims 36th, Edwards 43rd.

Also, not the route I would've gone here with such a valuable pick.

My 1st Round Grades w/ Analysis in the thread:

Referenced my Big Board for value (linked again below w/ my other #NFLDraft content)
All my #NFLDraft content, including my Top 100 Big Board, in one spot👇
A+ (5 total) = Elite pick - great player & fit + excellent value
A (6) = Great - great player & fit
B (5) = Good - would've done it differently
C (5) = Reach / Left value on the board
D (6) = Come again? ... Why.
F (5) = See gif👇

My father was of that era. He woke me up this morning after seeing my obit. “I have a Pete Retzlaff story.” When my he was in army basic training at Fort Jackson his platoon was asked if anyone could drive. “I can,” my father said. The colonel may need a driver, go to his office.
“Where ya from?” the colonel asked?


“You like the #Eagles? I served with Pete Retzlaff.”

“Yeah. I actually live down the street from Pete!” (This was a fib.)

“Come back next Sunday and we’ll watch some football.”

And for the next 8 weeks they watched the NFL.
“So that’s my Pete Retzlaff story. Helped get me through basic training,” my father said this morning. “Hellava player.”

Well it’s Thursday so that means it is time for the Week 3 edition of #NarrativeStreet. With two games under our belt it’s tempting to think the hay is in the barn, but that’s dangerous thinking. It will continue to change every week so don’t anchor those opinions....
...stay flexible and keep attacking as things evolve.

So let’s check in with the biggest stories and see what’s happening. We’ll hit some Team Narratives first, then finish with individual players....buckle up, it’s gonna be a long one...Happy Week 3 - LFG!

#Bears 📉📉: People are fuh-REAKing out. But they started v two ferocious pass rushes, and they came out 1-1. Am I excited about them? No. But they get a weak Wash D this week, and the post bye sked is pretty soft. Be patient.

Stoked to announce @ZooKeys_Journal published our @BatumiRaptors data paper! It explains how our #citizenscience project monitors the autumn #migration of >1.000.000 #raptors in the Eastern Black Sea Flyway, and how to use our #openaccess data @GBIF/@NLBIF! - 1/n

Many #raptors migrate primarily by thermal #soaring. To do so they travel by day and avoid high mtns and open sea. This leads to spectacular raptor aggregations in overland #flyways. One of the world´s largest raptor flyways occurs along the eastern Black Sea coast in SW Georgia.
The Eastern Black Sea Flyway has its narrowest point just north of #Batumi, where the coast and Lesser Caucasus form a clear "bottleneck". The mtns are not extremely high but present a significant barrier for #raptors on #migration due to low and dense cloud cover. @BatumiRaptors

Some have asked me to respond to today’s Carson Wentz story.

I don’t typically comment on other reporter’s stories on the #Eagles beat and won’t here.

But I will offer some reporting I’ve done on Wentz’s personality the last year, which I hope accurately captured his nature ...
From April: Will Carson Wentz alter his aggressive style as he returns from knee surgery? Frank Reich, who had his battles with the #Eagles QB, and others weigh in:…
From Sept: “Carson Wentz’s Comeback. The long, arduous road for the Type-A #Eagles QB who had to surrender his will to outside forces:…

Shot 1 - One of the strengths of Nick Foles' game is his ability to get the ball out quick. At his peak he reads the defense and gets the ball where it needs to in the construct of the play. Great examples here from the win over #DaBears #FlyEaglesFly
Shot 2 - Alshon Jeffery continues to be a huge part of the #Eagles passing game, they used him a ton as the X Iso WR on the backside of trips in this game vs #DaBears, and he came through against his former team. #FlyEaglesFly
Shot 3 - That last throw to Alshon does not happen without this block from Dallas Goedert. He has done a really good job as a blocker this year, and he came through in this game for a couple of big ones. This was a great heads up play from the rookie. #FlyEaglesFly

Shot 1 - #Eagles DT Fletcher Cox was dominant in the team's win over the Rams on Sunday Night Football. Pass Rush? Check. Run defense? Check. Motor? Check. Cox is ELITE #FlyEaglesFly
Shot 2 - Michael Bennett set the tone for Jared Goff on the very first third down of the game with a huge hit on Goff. Bennett flashed against the pass and against the run in this game #FlyEaglesFly
Shot 3 - Haloti Ngata played 42% of the snaps on Sunday night and made his presence known against the run and the pass. Gave the #Rams OL fits inside. #FlyEaglesFly
