Epic Eagle Wars on the Shores of Sandy Point

March 20, 2019  •  4 Comments

With Camera in hand I aim my lens towards the sky as a I hear the High pitched squawk of an Eagle.  Since I've been staying up here at Sandy Point I see Eagles on the Beach every single day. No matter how familiar they have become I am still in awe of these majestic birds.  Just as I find the Eagle with my lens it swoops down and  I see him snatch a Duck right out of the water.


  As he flew towards the pilings to pluck his Duck lunch a few of his friends decide that they would like to join him.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In all of the excitement he dropped the duck.  He wasn't feeling like sharing as you can see .

After a brief yet loud conversation his friends decided that they would go find their own lunch and left him to eat in private.  Living on the Beach is like full time Nature station.  I never knew that Eagles ate Ducks...did you?

Yes they eat ducks they actually hunt ducks. They will fly over them making the ducks move and weed out the week ones to separate the week from the flock and then snatch one
