Wow! by a factor of 10X.
Herb, these are wonderful.
Among the several eagle "food-fight" images I've seen, those lethal talons never seem directed at the other birds- but only at the food (usually fish).
I suspect that on a subconscious level, birds of prey realize the damage that can be done by their talons, and because of some unconscious realization that hurting each other would ultimately be bad for the species, they avoid such contact when merely competing for food.
I don't mean this in a conscious anthropomorphic way- strictly in a subconscious "instinctive-behavior" way.

These guys give up their food too easily. More biting and gnashing needed. Nice set Herb.


Thanks Kenny

Can't we all just get along?!?!?

Wow, that is amazing. Like Charlie said, it is interesting how they don't seem to attack each other or really fight. It is just a food grab tug-o-war.

Just drove through your area last Friday Herb. Hope you are recovering finally. I had forgotten to get the car topped off in Connecticut, and we had less than 30 miles left in the tank as we idled our way down through Princeton in traffic jams. Just barely made it to PA! Talk about being puckered up! Hope it gets worked out soon.

Yup, I figured the younger guy would end up with the fish. Great sequence.

Herb,

A cool sequence. The few times I've seen a food fight, it was always the younger guy going after the food (not that I've seen that many BE food fights ).

Hi Wes, I've seen and photographed more adults stealing from the younger inexperienced eagles than the other way around.
