On the White Rock to Kwomais Point stretch again today, we watched more eagle/crow action. These may be the same pair I posted two days ago; it's in the same area.
They were both perched in the same dead tree. This was surprising enough, but as we walked in their direction, stopping every few steps to take another photo, they just sat there.
And sat there.
And sat there some more.
For a good five minutes.
Finally, just as we reached the base of the trees, the crow leapt off his branch with a loud, "Caw!", flew around behind the eagle and attacked. The eagle took off, with the crow in hot pursuit. As soon as the pair was well aloft and offshore, the crow dropped back and went to take up his post in the green branches next door. The eagle flew on until he disappeared in the distance.
(The poor eagle looks awfully scruffy. It's molting season. He's not dressed to impress the opposite sex any more. He doesn't impress the crow, either.)
