I happened upon a group of Bald Eagles that were eating on some type of carcass in the river the other morning. A juvenile was standing in the water and pulling at whatever was just under the water. Several adults made low passes and scouted the area. It seems that at least one osprey also took interest in the scene. Comments and criticism always appreciated.

Nice shots.

I have yet to see the eagles i am following go into the water on this river i cover. Not that they don't, just haven't seen it happen yet.
