Who’d A Thunk Yet Again

If at all possible I get out on foul weather days. So many times one might run across an unusual wildlife activity. Yesterday morning an eagle pair took turns diving and attempting to catch or run off a racoon from their nesting area. Later I saw an immature eagle eating a fish in an Osprey nest. After eating the young eagle acted as if it was practicing to be an adult by arranging sticks in the nest. Yet again another ( Who’d a thunk ). Heading out today for a mini-vacation. Will not post again until probably Tuesday of next week…

    Wowing us, before leaving? Thank you. These are all very ‘wow’/unusual pix. Who’d a thunk?, indeed. The poor racoon, amazing shots of the chase. The Eagle working on Osprey nest, strange. The gorgeous Fall colors with the Pelicans. All enjoyable to view. Have a great mini vacation. Beautiful time of year to do so. Enjoy!

      Ellen Bunnell,
      The eagles probably just running the coon away from the nesting area. I have seen webcams of eagles driving a racoon out of a nest while sitting eggs. Coons are such good climbers they would be a threat to eggs or young. Yes, they were pelicans. Hard to tell in the pics cropped so small to load fast as I do on this page. I made a long walk around the edge of the bay and by the time I got back out in the open the pelicans were gone. Thank You. We are having heavy rains and wind but I hope some of the color is left in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky…

    A closer look at the Pelicans, not close enough to distinguish, but I’m not so sure they are Pelicans? But I really have no idea what they’d be otherwise.

  3. That was one lucky raccoon, and not very bright by the looks!
    Have a great vacation!
