Had an amazing time this afternoon at Ottawa/Magee Marsh NWR in northwest Ohio. I've never seen so many eagles in the same small area---had five in one tree and a few others circling nearby. They flew very low overhead at times, and were far more approachable than any other eagles I've seen. (I usually think of them as pretty skittish birds.)

Here's one image---have a look at my photostream  (external link)(if you're interested) to see the five that I liked best!

Wow, lucky you to get those kind of opportunities. I'm going to have to get off of my duff and go where there are more birds.

Thanks! And yes, consensus seems to be that it's a Merganser.

Great opportunity and you got some great shots! And you answered my own question on why eagles don't grab ducks :)

Yeah, you know, I'd read that eagles take waterfowl, but until yesterday I'd never seen any evidence. It's a good scale-comparison. Eagles are big!

This is a great shot. As is the one with the Merganser. That's fine shooting, Noah.

An excellent shot. If it was mine I would be tempted to remove the twigs. Great job on this one.
