Sunday, October 21, 2012 Eagles dine on Swan

I received a report while I was away checking out the Eurasian Skylark, that two adult BALD EAGLES were feeding on a cygnet, probably TRUMPETER SWAN, on thin ice at the Mile 1 Nash Road wetland pond on Sunday.  Two adult swans and two other cygnets fed calmly in an open area about 30 yards away. All that was left is a big pile of feathers.

That must have been quite the struggle!

Happy Birding!
