I've found myself looking at the sky a bit more.....just wondering what may be 'landing' since I ordered some Purina Eagle Chow.

That plan would definitely work.

You would need to "feed train" the eagle with yappy dogs for a few months first. (Does Texas Hunter make a feeder that throws Yorkies without jamming?)

After your eagles are properly trained, they would definitely be the top predator in your neighborhood "pond" culling the undesirable (loud) biomass. laugh

Another Eagle 🦅 was harassing the fish this morning. A young one. Seemed less experienced trying to hover 10’-15’ over the pond surface and dropping down.

Great video, Tbar!

Good thing we don't still have pterodactyls - or you would be losing cattle in the same manner.

We have black vultures in southern Indiana which apparently prey on newborn calves.

Now that is unsettling.

Very rare, but it happens here also. I've seen several instances this year where cows circle a new born calve, while the vultures try to get to the afterbirth.

If given the opportunity they will go for the eyes.
