Crow and Eagle: Birds of a Feather?

Birds of a feather may flock together...according to the Dutch proverb.
But this eagle doesn't look like he's in the mood for an argument! "I said MOVE!"
The crow wisely obliged, and gave up his perch.

Taken from the front deck, just a few minutes ago.  The wondrous things we see if we only open our eyes and look!  Shortly after this last photo was snapped, s/he flew away.

  1. Wonderful photos, Nancy. It sure gives a good measure of size between the birds. Are you noticing more eagles in the last year or so, we sure are.

  2. How lucky you were to capture this birds. They do seem to be having a bit of a turf war huh? Glad the crow was smart and moved on. That Eagle looked like he meant business, lol. Have a nice weekend Nancy. :)

  3. You must live in a beautiful place to capture such a great shot, Nancy. I love your thought of “open your eyes and look”. I often think we are so busy that we miss the beauty right in front of us. Thanks for the sweet reminder.

  4. I love watching the interaction of eagles and crows. When the eagles fly, the crows harass them terribly. When the eagle has landed, nobody can perch nearby.

  5. Anytime there is an eagle, hawk, or osprey here I know by the ruckus the crows make. I swear there have been a dozen or more crows dive-bombing the poor birds as they perch or fly. Since we have a pair of resident bald eagles here, I have had the opportunity to capture these encounters on my camera and them post them too. Fascinating creatures and interactions! Your shots of the encounter are great. It looks like you’re right there with them!

  6. West Nile virus has really wreaked havoc with our crow population here. It’s good to see them back, albiet in smaller numbers, this year. I haven’t seen many eagles around here. That second shot is worth a thousand words Nancy! The crow was smart to mosie on along.

  7. How very cool! and great shots, too. We had a few eagles nesting at our shopping center last year. I almost dropped my canteloupes!

  8. Hi Nancy! I just wanted to stop by and let you know that I referenced your blog in my latest post. I was reminiscing about my journey into garden blogging, and life in the ‘Blogosphere’ – it included garden blogs that have influenced me. -Thank you! –Shyrlene
