While i have several posts with bald eagles, This one is special; tell you why when i get back to a board. Just needed to post these pics now, along with two buddies i met along the day...
here is the story.
Driving into town; spot the eagle in the Eagle Tree.
Stop and get some pics.
Further in,Yikes! a newly dead squirrel in the road.
Do what anyone would do:
on the trip back take the squirrel to the eagle. Lay it at the perimeter of the Eagle Tree, Eagle still aperch.
Less than a half hour later, both the squirrel and the Eagle are gone.
Is it right to feed an eagle?
Is it right to scare a lion away from a struggling cheetah baby?
Is it right to help a penguin get back home?
Is it right to help a starving african child when a vulture sits nearby, needing dinner?
i was driving on campus --and
Yikes! right in the road: a bluejay was trying to fly off with a baby sparrow, who was trying to fly away. The mom sparrow was trying to lure baby into some bushes.
A male cardinal and a robin were attacking the bluejay, to little avail.
I threw on the truck's emergency brake, jumped out and was approaching the bluejay who looked at me like, "this does not concern you"--
Uutil i practically touched him, he did not let go of the baby sparrow, whose head was in his beak.
As he flew a tiny bit away, the two other birds kept attacking him until he flew off. the mother coaxed the baby to fly sort of into the bushes and then-
She Came Back to offer take a Thorn Out of my Paw.
I went to the Union to an event going on, related my story, and the Queen of Nonviolence said, "not your best Jane Goodall Moment, eh?"
