Eagle Fish Chase!

Eagle Fish Chase!

The mature eagle on the right has a fish and the other eagles are chasing it to snatch away the fish if they can. This activity can be pretty intense and involve several eagles chasing to snatch a small fish. We can tell when the fish are not very plentiful because the eagles chase each other more, even over very small fish. Bald Eagle (Halliaeetus leucocephalius).
