Being arguably the most regal bird on the face of the planet and the symbol of the greatest nation is no doubt a source of great pride for Bald Eagles. However, sometimes even these majestic creatures find themselves under siege by smaller creatures.
This one found itself continually being pestered by a couple of Western Kingbirds that clearly didn’t care about the raptor’s stature or bigger size. Here, one of the little ones takes a swipe right at the bigger bird.
I watched this activity for more than a half hour and more than once though the Kingbird managed to land a hit on the Eagle. Nevertheless, the Eagle paid them virtually no attention treating them no different than a fly. You sure would think it would snatch one of them out of the air and punish it for its audacity. 😉
