Interesting Early Morning Eagle Action

 

The last couple mornings with the river levels starting to fall it is leaving still flooded sections of fields. Immature and juvenile eagles might be seen anywhere feeding on the stranded dead fish.

Watched an eagle try again and again to pick up a large fish and take it to the three eaglets it has to be fed. The large fish just to heavy for the eagle to fly with despite its efforts. An eagle can carry around six pounds. I would guess this fish to be just a little larger than that probably between seven and eight lbs. The eagle would stop and rest and eat a bit of the fish then try again to get airborne with fish in tow. Finally it splash landed in the water. Drug the fish back up on the bank. Ate a while longer than made one last effort to fly with the fish giving up when it slipped from its grasp. The eagles mate flew down and fed for a while drank from a puddle before leaving. Never once trying to fly with the fish. It may have been chuckling at its mates attempts as it watched from a nearby tree…
