A Bald eagle’s branch dance

Bald eagle's branch dance - © Christopher Martin-2949
I found an aerie of four Bald eagles east of the Crowsnest Pass this weekend.  They perched in still dormant trees that divide up several farm fields.  From these perches, they can hunt for the ground squirrels that scurry between their holes among the short grass.  This eagle had just finished his meal and I caught him adjusting his position on the branch.  It looked a bit like a line dancing sidestep to me.

    I love this shot! It really shows that birds are really majestic creatures even though they are only hanging in a branch. Good job! ^_^

  8. I love raptors caught on camera. And yes that isn’t just a dance step… it’s like a little march he is doing. 🙂

    He could be seriously taking a step to the right as part of his Time Warp routine.
