February and March are prime months for seeing Bald Eagles as they migrate through the high desert. They follow the flocks of snow geese, tundra swans and numerous ducks that fly through the area on their way back north.
I like to photograph and record nature with realism. Birds of prey have to eat and that is messy. Eagles cull the weak and sick birds from the flocks. They fly over large rafts of snow geese scaring them into panicked flight. They pick the ones off the water that are too weak to fly or are struggling. Nothing goes to waste. Ravens follow the eagles and clean up any scraps.

wow, 😵great pictures !!!
Great shots! Nature manifests wisdom in everything. Every creature makes sense except us humans.
…and they have babies to feed. I remember back to days in the Utah high desert when I’d see them perched on trees on the drive to work. They always have such an intense ferocious look.
Absolutely! Everything has to eat. 🙂
Awesome captures! Bald eagles are such beautiful creatures! ❤
They are! Thank you.
You’re so welcome. 🙂
