I had spent all morning hanging out at one of my favorite Bald Eagle nests. While the female and her two eaglets were around, the male was nowhere to be found. Just as I was packing up, I see him come flying in. I quickly started snapping pictures as I could see he was carrying something.
Once he landed I could tell – he had caught himself an American Coot! He sat just below the nest, enjoying his meal, shredding it as he did. After a time and having had his fill, he took the leftovers to the nest for the rest of his family. The light was pretty harsh by the time all this action took place so the pics aren’t the greatest but it sure was fun to witness!
