During mating season,I’ve found that eagles will greet each other with a song. Romeo & Juliette love to sing to each other & are very dedicated to each other as well!

Romeo is the one on the left in the upper shots & the one in focus in the lower.

      • No, me either. I asked because we saw one flying last week in the snow flurries and instead of their usual soar he was batting his wings and zig-zagging up and down in the air. I was hoping he wasn’t injured :(

      • remember, many times because of eagles being around humans settlements they can eat something poisonous.When people put rat poison out (brodifacoum) the rats will ingest it & begin to act funny.Rats are very observant creatures normally & are secretive but under the effluence of poison they stagger/walk around in open fields. Making them easy prey for a passing raptor like a Baldie.They’ll dive down & scoop’um up keep as a bunny! Much like dropping a hundred dollar bill in a busy Christmas shopping mall!
        So the rapture will ingest this poisoned rat & in turn die as well.Most rodent pesticides are classified as “second-generation anticoagulant rodenticides”. Basically both the rat & eagle die of hemorrhaging.The blood vessels erupt.
        So If you ever see a rodent,raptor,skunk etc acting strangely,it could be poisoned (or Rabies?)

      • Aw! I really hope that’s not what happened here :(
        Bad thing is there is no easy solution. The rats are a real menace. As you say, they carry disease, and destroy property (The mechanics found trace of them under the hood of my Mustang!) I can see why people set out poison, it’s just sad when it affects others in the food chain.

  1. My like didn’t stick, so I’m trying again. This is just deliriously wonderful! Next time, we are going shooting together and I will make sure to plan the time. Happy Holidays talented one!
