Two dead Bald Eagles - sad

for the past 6 years, I have bee photographing landscape and birds at Forsythe Preserve, ten miles north of Atlactic City. In December, Bald Eagles appeared and I got a few photos. Over the next two months, I got a couple of more photos. I have no idea if these were always the same or different Eagles.

Today, I read that two Bald Eagles were dead, the results of a fight for territory. One killed the other but was the, itself caught in branches of the disputed tree. It was euthanized unable to recover from frost bite. This was about five miles from the preserve.

1. Two years ago I saw two bald eagles fighting while camping.

They were fighting above a lake and it was brutal, they fought for a good 10 minutes till one plunged into the lake and was trying to swim out but the other kept swooping down and attacking, the one in the lake finally drowned. Everyone at the lake was just frozen watching it. Nature is not always nice and with limited resources it's what they will do to protect what is theirs.

3. We have a Bald Eagle here in Wisconsin that is flying around with a leg trap clamped

on both feet. It will die soon unless the rehabbers are able to catch it. They are trying.

4. Came across a huge bald eagle killed by a semi-truck..

 

On I-4 in Orlando. He swooped in to low and was clipped by the truck. Most beautiful bird I've ever seen. No blood...fully intact. Sad as shit.

Several people surrounded it and waiting for the Eagle rescue society to come and get it. One douchebag walked up and tried to take it....everyone stopped him and made it very clear he would break federal law.
