A Year In Pictures

While at the eagle center we were lucky enough to see an eagle eat.  Meet Harriet.  Harriet too has an injured wing, and also if you notice her punk hair do, she also may have had some scar tissue on her head that caused her feathers to grow this way.   Harriet’s favorite meal is rats, but her second most favorite meal is a rabbit.  We learned that an Eagles beak is not that strong, they hunt primarily with their feet and claws by ripping their prey apart.  When they eat they swallow the bones and all.  Doesn’t sound very appetizing to me!  Harriet had this rabbit down in minutes and afterwards looked very full!

 

Also, just to prove Christina and I were really together here is a quick picture.  Both Christina and I are alike in that we both don’t like our pics takes.  lol

    Harriet does seem to have a smug expression going on, guess that rabbit’s lucky foot must have been out-of-date LOL. Great to see you and Christina on the other side of the lens.

  6. we had a chance to stend beside the bird for a photo but we did not take that, guess we thought it would bite us. I regret that now though

    I’m not sure if it would have been better to take these pix before, or after, lunch. Hmmmm……

    Not that I doubted it…but great to see the two of you together. These eagle shots showed that those birds are serious predators–not just noble profiles.

    These views have the best ewwww factor, I’m proud of you for getting these shots. 🙂

    How cool that you got to meet up and in such an amazing place. Nice to ‘see’ you both.
    All your shots from this re-hab place are so strong, life is messy…

    Harriet might’ve shared a piece of rabbit with you girls…or maybe you’d rather have rat too!
