Thank you Tony! I'll look it up and get the name.

Don't know what kind of bird it is, but is is diving for fish.

Thanks, Steph, the scene gave me a shiver. I hope it was some kind of trick, but it looked real to me.

I am not at all knowledgeable about such things, but why do Eagles not see children as prey?

Comment by Steph S. on December 20, 2012 at 11:37am

Yes, I would not of believed that one. Eagles do not see children as prey.

It appears the Eagle snatching child was a fake:   http://news.discovery.com/animals/baby-snatching-eagle-video-goes-v...

Interesting picture Melinda.  That squirrel doesn't seem to be bothered by the birds at all.

I've seen more colorful birds on this site that I thought existed, and so many interesting poses and actions.  Photoshop is a good program, but it's frustrating trying to decide what is real anymore.

Hey Tony!
Wow Stunning beauty of a bird!
I'll see if I can look it up in my field guide or online.
