Today I had the pleasure of watching a spectacular display of eagle behaviour. An adult Bald Eagle flew into a pine tree in front of our property at Gannon Narrows. It was not sitting comfortly in the tree and we could not see if it had anything in its talons. It then flew about 100 yards out onto the ice and began devouring a bird. Feathers were flying everywhere. Then, along came a second adult eagle but there was no way the first one was sharing. We watched the picnic on the ice for about 15 minutes. Fantastic.
