So I was watching this female bald eagle - a little over 100 yards away, when a male flew into the frame and landed on top of her. It's not unusual in mating season, apparently. I've always been amazed at how human-like these birds are- and you can see that in the annoyed look the female has in here eyes! Haha
The whole sequence took about 2 minutes, but what I've never seen before was - he ate food right off her back! Then, he just lept off and flew away -
And for the record- these birds are two of the largest I've seen. Easily over 2 feet tall with wingspans that reach 6 ft ++.
Here's the sequence-
AND HE STUCK THE LANDING!!!
HAS HIMSELF A LITTLE SNACK...
OK, IM DONE! IM OUT!!
HIM: CATCH YOU LATER!
HER: I HATE YOU....
