Bald Eagles and a hawk battle in the air for a prairie dog meal

A very fun thing to witness. An adult Bald Eagle had snagged a prairie dog and as it attempted to fly off with it, three other eagles and a hawk chased it. One juvenile eagle managed to knock the prairie dog from the elder’s grasp but the adult dove and snatched it mid-air. The action was a good ways away so these images are cropped heavily.

Taken in Adams County, Colorado.  Scroll down to view the complete sequence of images.
