Visited a new wetland are in Florida called VIERA WETLANDS and nature met us 100% Didn't even know Bald Eagles were there!!!!

A three hour drive north of me, totally accessible by car which makes it easier for wheelchair observers just to drive and shoot! It was during one of these said moments when we spy this crow aggravating what I initially thought was a vulture until I jumped out of the car to zoom in.

What was observed was a lifer, after the attack from crow, the Eagle pounced on a little Coot and flew off to digest. Incredible!

Bald eagle population will continue to be monitored, and still receives protection in the United States under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, both of which prohibit the killing, selling or harming of eagles, including the nests and eggs.

Hello Brenda,
A scene that you don't get to see every day, yet alone have the opportunity to photograph with your camera. The eagle seems to have no idea that the crow is about to pounce on it from the rear. Very unique capture!!
