    Thank You Gary
    He does look a bit more relaxed
     
  4. Cool series. Seems the crow didn't appeal him much.

    Crows and Mocking birds will literally chase anything.
    The Eagle has never tried to get a bird that I have seen.
    Now if it was by the nest, I am sure it would be a totally different matter:>)))

    Thank You for the kind words.
     
  6. That is just too funny.

    I think that eagle is just too noble to bother himself with a lowly crow!

    Hi Mitch,
    It was rather comical...
    The Eagle would just look and crouch down a bit.
    This was a many as I could keep in frame:>)))))
    What a pest.

    Thank You
     
  8. Very nice series Gale. Love the expression on the Eagle.

    Pretty comical when this happens. First time I was able to catch this.

    They do have expressioons for sure:>))

    Thank You Sandi,
    Glad you enjoyed a bit of nature:>))

    This time the Eagle stuck it out
    Sometimes they just get tired of it and fly.

    I think the Crow turned chicken

    Hi Gale,

    This is quite a series you captured! These would be a great candidate for one of those large picture frames that hold multiple images. These are some really nice action images!

    How many passes did the crow make? I'm curious if it was a persistant pest or just a couple of fly bys?
     
  13. Good show Gale I have a similar one in a nest with a Bluejay. Have to dig it out and post.

    Andy that would be a great idea.
    I have a couple more in the gallery.
    These are the only ones I captured. He was being a real pest. He gave up sooner than I though he would. Usually they will magage to chase the Bird off. I wanted that shot of the eagle flying off with the crow in chase.I kept focus on the Eagle because I wanted the thaat flight shot. Well that did not happen. heehee this time:>)))
    Maybe next time I will not zoom out so far and get more of the action.

    Glad you enjoyed the series.

    That would be great Lou
    Will the Eagles go after a bird that get close to the nest.

    Thanks for looking
     
  16. Gale you sure captured the action great. This series sure shows how those crows love to chase the eagles. Around here it is not uncommon to see a dozen or more crows diving at the eagles or hawks. Maybe some day I will be lucky enough to see the eagle nail one.
     
  17. Dunno which I like the better - the captions or the photos! Guess I just have to settle for thw whole "thang!"

    Fun stuff to see
    I am sure the Eagle does not think so
     
  19. Actualy Gale for the most part when a small bird (and there are quite a few that do) disturb a raptor like the eagle the eagle will eventually just leave. Some times the small bird will chase after it. Orioles love to harrest the eagle when it is perched up top of a pine and I have sat and watched it many times and the eagle leaves most of the time. The only one I can say hung in there was this female I watched as a bliue jay dove and dove at it as she protected her young eaglet from the sun while in the nest. No one really knows why the small birds chase after the eagle but in the case of the one I have I think the bluejay may have had a nest in another pare of the eagle nest and felt it was in some danger. I'll have to find it as it came out pretty good and amazed quite a few eagle people.

    Does an Eagle ever attack a bird that bother her nest , babies

    I know the Great Horned owl will steal an eagles nest

    I just find it so strange that a bird with such power , talons and beak wouldn't attack these pests.
