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.
