There's been a bald eagle hanging around this afternoon, I looked up just in time to see him stooping in at my dog. About 20' above and right at her. I jumped and ran out, he (she?) swerved away. She's not a small dog, 40lbs or so but I think a tempting target lying there unafraid. I wouldn't want to see that damned.gif

Maybe the eagle thinks she's dead because she's just lying there in the grass.

I snapped this just after I got home 2 1/2 hours ago and saw it on the power pole but it flew off before I could zoom in.

Perhaps it's just a youngster investigating.

That'd be nice chuckle.gif I really don't want to see a Karelian and a bald eagle tangle.

The bird would get the short end. chuckle.gif

But the youngsters have only been fledged about a month or so ~ they are learning their territory and learning how to be eagles. You should be seeing mom and dad around ~ they tend the youngsters for a long time after they fledge.

I've been following the Decorah Eagles (3) this year and they sure have had a time of it. The gnats drove them from the nest early. One broke a wing (in raptor rehab now) and one was electrocuted about 10 days ago. There is still one who is growing and prospering.

The nest cam may still be on, but it isn't active and there's a garden growing in it now.

Wow Shadow, that's pretty wild!

We have had so many little birds fly into our window since the little ones started flight training. They're showing where the food is. Mason loves to watch them through the window chuckle.gif

I think you're probably right about the eagle being a young one, DaJ.

Young bald eagles are all black. The Eagle could have had intentions of feasting on your pup. They have been known to take down deer.

They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Right, they don't get their white tail and head until they're well into second year. I've read many stories of eagles snatching little dogs but never a Karelian. Still, the way it was swooping in on Inka... 13.gif

On the game farm we'd put small stickers of birds on big windows, seems to give them a depth perception that prevents collisions.

We don't have bald eagles here, but we do have white-tailed ones and my dad's cousin from up where our cabin is said he was walking the dog one day when an eagle swooped down on it. The dog (Finnish Spitz) was leashed ffs. damned.gif

Good idea, but they need to learn not to fly into windows and I think they only do it once. chuckle.gif

She's not a small dog - that's what probably saved her.
