A few days ago, I asked my BIL, Slim, (sister Mel's hubby from Up North With Mel), if he happened to have a beaver carcass from his trapping ventures, just lying around that he wanted to share.
I love to watch the Eagles feed and they are scavengers for winter food and road kills. The beaver carcass must be like a delicacy in the eye of the great Bald Eagle.
It didn't take a few hours and there he was, sitting in the trees just beyond where his feast lay.
(sorry for the lack of clarity in these shots. Some were taken through a screened window and some just too far away as I still do not have the trail camera set up.)
Old Eagle Eye watched the crows and starlings for quite some time before deciding to check out his feast.
Even, once he was on top of his claim, he still constantly is checking~~~checking to see if a predator is sneaking up on him, or watching while he eats.
I see, he's watching me, watching him...
The Bald Eagle is such a magnificent bird, so worth the watch, if you ever get the opportunity.
Whether feasting, soaring high above or taking flight, each movement represents strength, power, agility, a means to an end.
And away he goes., off into the wild blue yonder,
until it's safe, once again, to return for more.
God Bless You this Weekend
(now, I really MUST go set the trail camera up to share more)
