Eagle Eye

Watched an example of the incredible vision of the Eagle Eye yesterday. The male eagle in the nest leaped out and flew low dropping down and picking up a dead squirrel off the road eight tenths of a mile away by my odometer. As the eagle flies probably just shy of three quarters of a mile. Next fly out dropping down in the grass and catching a mouse about a quarter mile away. I spose’ that is why I still enjoy observing eagles, ya still see something new and amazing now and then…

    This sure illustrations the meaning of Eagle Eyed. Quite a chance happening, caught on camera.

      Ellen,
      The eagle flew out of the nest with such an intense posture that I followed it with the camera to view the pick up off the road. It was far enough that with the naked eye I would not have seen it. Most of the time I lose them at that distance with trees in the background with my eyes. Got lucky and right place right time…

    I would think that mouse would only be a mouthful!
    The shot of the new leaves on the trees was beautiful!

      New Hampshire Gardener,
      The eagles must like mice as I have seen them carry them back to the nest a few times. It is so nice to have leaves coming back on the trees. Every trip down the road this week I marvel at how beautiful the redbuds are blooming. Have one right next to the house. I have not taken any pics of them this year as I doubt my pics would do them justice…
