    This is another angle of the Bald Eagle I took while I was at the riverbank. I should have posted all these flight shots together in my previous post.

      Northern Goshawk vs. Raven. So who's the hunter and being hunted?

      The trail on the Gold Bar Park has a bunch of duck feather remains, but unfortunately, none of us ever saw a Goshawk successfully grab a duck. However, the Goshawk is quite active. I already got plenty of flight shots that are keepers. I'm sure one of us these days will get the ultimate money shot of aGoshawk grabbing a duck off the water.

      Those feathers are no doubt coyote work too. Smart ducks wont take off from the water if there is a threat from above. I have seen them fold up and hit the water like a torpedo when they saw a hunting gyrfalcon fly overhead. Other than an eagle, most of these raptors can't / won't take the ducks off the water and the ducks know it :)
