Today was filled with lots of sheep chores – weaning, tagging, worming, foot trimming, and other fun stuff. While we were outside trimming hooves on some of the older sheep, I looked up and saw a HUGE bird being chased by crows. Luckily my camera was close at hand…
Those are crows, not little tweety birds. My husband confirmed my thoughts that it was a Golden Eagle.
It was amazing to watch the crows diving and swooping and chasing this big predator away from their territory.
Here is a great picture to see the wingspan and size difference.
The show was over just as quick as it started and the eagle was headed somewhere a little less harassing!
