We have the talon method.
And we have the beak method.
Which do you prefer? The parents out there seem to be teaching their juveniles how to fish.
This is in downtown Columbia MD. Wilde Lake. It seems the Triadelphia Eagles have relocated to become the Wilde Lake Eagles. I have heard there were as many as 20 out there. Today, we found 4 or 5.
The juveniles …
… haven’t developed that white head and white tail.
As for mom or dad …
… rather obvious, aren’t they?
I took my pictures today with my puny little D90 and a 200 mm lens. There were quite a few avid bird photographers out there.
If I win Powerball, maybe I will get one of those $2000 lenses, to do the up close shots. Still, all in all, it was just amazing to watch the eagles fish.
We hear that they are on Wilde Lake because of work being done out at Triadelphia, where they normally hang out. Eagles aren’t thrilled by all the photographers, walkers and bikers that ring the lake. While they are trying to get a meal.
If you get a chance, pop down. Morning or afternoon. They do like sunny days, though. When they can see the fish more easily.
