Laws of Nature

Strange the way things happen sometimes.Two Eagles

Two Bald Eagles and a whole bunch of crows.

Eagle and Crows

Leaving the scene of the feast.

An Eagle flying near the tree…most likely to wait until the coast is clear. Note you can almost see where the“orange” pine trees start along this field.

Too many deer, the population is way up.  They get hit by cars and become Eagle food.  Seems to me that a death with a well placed bullet would be better than the bone shattering impact of a vehicle and then having your flesh plucked from your bones.

  1. Poor deer - but I guess the eagles were happy.

  2. Poor deer. We are seeing way to many dead on the side of the highway. I agree - a bullet from a hunter is a much better way to die. But our feathered friends need to eat also.

  3. Oh my. It's always distressing to me to see roadkill, big and small. You're right about the well placed bullet. :-)

  4. Oh, my.... that sounds so gross, getting your flesh plucked from your bones. We see so many vultures around the area feasting on road kill, but don't see the eagles. My husband will be heading out to harvest a deer for food in a month or so.

  5. Morning, well, when you put it that way...feel bad for the beautiful deer, as long as they are shot for food and not just for the heck of it. Blessings Francine

  6. Nature is pretty rough to watch sometimes. Not to mention that hitting a deer on the road can be painful for people, too.

  7. I drove to Ellsworth and saw so much road kill yesterday. Lots of raccoons, squirrels, skunks, a deer, and even a fox. And lots of crows and a few eagles feasting. It's a good thing they are around to clean up after the cars and trucks!

  8. Watching when there's a large congregation of birds usually leads us to an interesting story. With the winter we had our deer population is down. There were very few fawns this summer.

  9. I agree with you. But well, the Eagles do need food!

  10. In Iowa they "thin them out" or at least they did when I worked in Iowa City. They hire professionals to come in as they are a danger to themselves and others plus...starvation is not a humane way to die.

  11. Eagles have to eat, too, though. And our friends the crows. ;)

  12. Crows are always around for a good opportunity of a free meal. I can hear them calling right now as I see the photo.
