We had been wanting to visit this place since last fall, where we heard there were Bald Eagles living next to this giant hydro-electric dam on the Susquehanna River, not far from one of our favorite spots, Susquehanna State Park.
We grabbed our binoculars and drove down and over the dam.
It grabbed the fish out of the water with its talons and then landed on a concrete wall next to the dam.The fish can be seen at the Eagle’s feet.
These next few pictures visually tell the story.
It began to eat the fish when a Blue Heron, who was also very interested in the fish landed next to the Bald Eagle.
The Heron watched the Eagle intently and then suddenly another Blue Heron landed to the Left side of the Eagle, distractingly enough so that the first heron was able to grab the rest of the fish from the Eagle, eat it and then flew off. The Eagle then just sat there awhile, taking in the afternoon sun.
The fish can be seen hanging from the mouth of the Blue Heron.
