Eagle and the Raven

Uploaded: October 08, 2012 04:25:27


The Eagle caught a fish and the Raven is trying to steal it. The Eagle was so upset with the Raven he would snap at him and in the process drop a bite of fish which the Raven would promptly fly down and eat.

GREAT CATCH Seems to be quite the standard procedure between these two types of birds from Alaska to Florida.
Then again Bald Eagles would rather steal from one another than hunt for themselves.

Truly superb image that tells a story. In THIS case I think the Raven is the more clever of the two birds. A favorite. #10360264
