Aerobatics.

Aerobatics.

Yesterday I posted an image and told the story of the Eagles at Berry College. I did do an update, but in case you missed it. I was pretty surprised that when the male went out to the other 2 Eagles and called the female didn’t come in. In thinking back, we saw one Eagle followed shortly after by another Eagle. It turns out the second one was the female. After they ran the other Eagle off, the female is the one who returned to the nest. The female did some pretty cool aerobatic stunts as she approached the nest too. She came close to doing a few loops even. Seeing the male bring in the large catfish earlier and then witnessing this event and the flying skills of the Eagles made the trip worth it. I will definitely go back!
