Eagle Week – Day 4
Hard to imagine having so much fun in such a short period of time. I can see why Burt goes to the lock and dam nearly every day.
This pair of eagles must be mates because throughout the afternoon they taunted each other. If one of them took off the other one wasn’t far behind. I was lucky enough to capture this clash in midair. No it’s not tack sharp but in my view it’s a keeper just for the dynamic action it captures. 🙂
Eagles weren’t the only wildlife at the dam. Toward the end of the day this lone pelican flew in over the lock. While perhaps not as majestic as the mighty eagle none-the-less Andreas and I were both excited to see this guy. I love to watch pelicans fly and when they get into a feeding frenzy it is really fun to watch. I shot several images of him floating in the water with the soft golden sun on his feathers. He was kind of far away after he landed so I’m probably not going to post those images.
Finally this skirmish between the have and the have not. Like I said on an earlier post, eagles are lazy and would often times rather steal a fish as to have to catch their own. I shot close to 80 images of this battle and I can report that the eagle that caught the fish finally ended up getting to eat it. 🙂
That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by. Thanks for your nice email Ron, wish I could find a cardinal for you.
Enjoy your day and be careful.
