I can't beleive our lake here is still wide open. This morning early there was a thin covering of ice out there but way out was open. Was very pretty. As I sat and watched this eagle. He flew suddenly and headed right for the open area. Swooped down and circled around coming back. I waited patiently. Back he came and landed. I actually didn't know he had a fish until I was viewing my shots with a friend. She said I think he has a fish. Well darned if he didn't. He didn't stay there long. He moved up the way to another tree. I saw him in that tree as I was driving up the road. I stopped to watch him. He sat there looking beautiful. Then I heard another eagle vocalizing as it approached. It was the young eagle who came right to the parent bird and tried to land with it. That didn't work, the adult flew the young flew and they touched talons. I am now wondering if the adult passed off some of the fish to its young one.At any rate. It was a very exiting day, the whole family gave me a great show. Still lots of ducks out there. In 2 hours all the ice gave way to wide open water yet again. Over the next few days I will be posting more shots of these magnificent birds.
