Eagle Fishing Frenzy Part 2

Things quieted down for a while after the first surge, but then…  It got started again as more and more Eagles joined in the fray.  This all took place in about 4 minutes!  Unbelievable!!  I think the two that eventually left the chaos behind may be the breeding couple that live in the park all year.  This spring they had 3 babies. Enjoy!  Merry Christmas!
