Fish Fight

Jordan Lake Dam, Haw River.  Winter Solstice.  The riprap was busy!

1) the 3-year-old male bald eagle on the left had caught the fish and the 1-year-old female bald eagle barreled in on the smaller eagle and he dropped the fish.

2) the 1-year-old was very lazy and banked off to the right.

3) the 3-year-old male did a 180º turn and grabbed the fish a second time and then dashed for the treeline before some other eagle could try to steal his meal.
