We had a Bald Eagle visit our very full, and fish-laden, pond yesterday and scoop up one of our huge catfish; it was so big it couldn’t fly and carry it. The eagle kept having to land and I guess eat it down to a size he could handle. Once finally in the air, a trio of hawks chased it, I imagine to see if he would drop it for a free lunch. I will be watching to see if he visits again. I have never seen a Bald Eagle in my life, so this was exciting to watch.
We did take some pictures, but the distance does not show the eagle very distinctly, although with binoculars we could see the distinct white head, huge beak, and the wing span when he took off was just amazing.
