Dive Bombing Bald Eagle

We decided to go for a wander around the big lake at MY Hanna Abbey Cowspotdog Park and were taking a little rest on the small dock when a huge bald eagle came out of nowhere and dove straight into the water less then 10 feet away from us. It grabbed a HUGE fish in its feet but it was way to heavy and the eagle ended up splashing it wings and flapping around like a beached whale in the water before eventually having to let go of the fish and flying off again. Mom was so stunned watching it - she didn't even think to turn the camera on but she did get pictures of us !

  2. Whoa, good thing that eagle was after fish and not cowspot dogs:) That must have been so cool to see. But it is always cool to see such beautiful shots of you handsome boys.

  3. Wow, that's so cool! We have several eagles around my territory and it's special to see them every single time. My peeps once saw one pouncing on something in the grass, but couldn't see what it had. They love fishies. OMD what a super and amazing memory! I'm so glad you are enjoying the outdoors in your area. Love those pix of you!

  13. Wow! You guys are so lucky! My peep saw a wild eagle for the first time in her whole life last month, it is eating roadkill... Amazing birds!

  14. Wow! That's amazing! We wish we could have seen it! Better be careful that eagle doesn't try to nab you, though. We are seeing more and more hawks and vultures around here. There are a few eagles, but we haven't seen them yet. Ghostwriter remembers when seeing any kind of hawk was a momentous occasion that only happened maybe once every few years. We're so glad they're all making a comeback.

  15. Crikey ..... how exciting. I sure would have liked to see that but, at least I get to see you two. That's always exciting!! Its good to know that, just sometimes, a fish gets away from those blokes too, aye?? Wonder if he went home and told his Missus about the one that got away!!
