Crows vs Bald Eagle

Lots of commotion from the Crows this morning. Several of the them were scolding an immature Bald Eagle in the tree right behind our house. It is a BIG bird. It didn’t seem bothered. We have a lot of Bald Eagles around here. They congregate on the Iowa River below the dams to grab fish. It flew away and all was quiet again.

    Nice, Jim, thanks for sending! In the middle of a blizzard here, 12-18” predicted.

    Crows certainly express their displeasure loudly and clearly! It’s great you have good numbers of eagles in your area. They are just beginning to return to our area of MA… always a thrill to see them.

      I see one glide over every few days. We can see many at once by driving 3 miles to open water on the river. At the Mississippi River you can see dozens gathered below the dams.

    We rarely see eagles in my area, but they’re around the rivers east and north of here a bit. Two days ago, I’m sure I saw one overhead. Between the size and the markings, the adults are pretty easy to spot. I remember you talking about them at the Mississippi; what fun to have one in your neighborhood!
