Did I Really Just Miss that Fish?

Posted by .

Bald Eagle DIving for fish and missing the fish. Fish is behind the Eagle in the water (sandra calderbank)

I watched this Eagle fly around The Bear Swamp Pool at Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge recently. The adult was flying with two juveniles and seemed to be “showing off” his hunting skills. I know I know, I’m probably anthropomorphizing but it made a good story as I watched their behavior. It was quite a sight when the adult missed his target! It really wasn’t the day for that lucky fish to become food.
