one foot carry

WALK7681 one foot carry eagle 2015

the eagle does not have the osprey’s specialized roughened talons for holding fish
yet, even if the eagle has caught the fish with just one foot
it makes no effort to get the second foot on the fish or to a better position
this may account for the higher number of drops I see made, especially by the young eagles rather than by juvenile ospreys
