Pugilists' Sunday II

A gorgeous chocolate-brown juvenile eagle was standing sentry when a single crow began mobbing it. After a while it conceded and flew off (crappy pics):


  1. I actually like the pics--have found that bald eagles are very hard to get pix of, tho. Thought I was going to get a great pic of a bald eagle driving thru the Oregon desert last week, but predictably it flew off just as I was raising the camera, then alit again just out of reasonable camera range!

  2. I have been photographing our local bald eagles all fall, winter, and spring. They will sit for along time at one perch, then fly off for no apparent reason. They show an amazing tolerance for strafing crows and gulls.
