Eagles on fish
3:rd of February 2010
When I come up to the lake to fill up the eagle feeding station with fish, two adult White-tailed Eagles are sitting and eating on the fish. I get 2 pictures before they rise into the air. They do however stay around to check out my actions. One of them is especially curious and hangs in the wind not far from me. Finally the couple lands in a tree and watch me from there.
The even more interesting thing happens when I am about to leave. A third eagle appears and it is a Golden Eagle(!), an adult bird. I lay down and play dead next to the fish carcasses to see what will happen. It just glides towards me slowly in the wind for minutes til it is like only 30 meters away. An almost religious encounter.
