American Bald Eagle in flight, with a hapless Squirrel in its mighty grip


Yes, birders sometimes get rewarded, some times, when everything falls into place.
Off and on, I had been observing food deliveries to the Iona eagle’s nest without being
able to detect a pattern of time or direction. Another confirmation of the fact that nesting birds rarely go by a schedule. Deliveries happen whenever there is something to deliver.
A fine lens, steady hand, patience and luck came together to get the shot.
