Oh nature, you curious ways are a wonder.

Happy December!!!

A light rain was falling as I stepped outside for my daily walk. I chose to walk around the property for a change and headed right for the river, looking forward to a brisk, heart pumping walk up and down the steep incline.

As I reached the edge of the riverbank, I heard a crow calling out. I looked around, then up and saw two birds. One was huge, the other not so much. The large one looked like a bald eagle 🦅 and it was being attacked by a crow. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was wishing I could get a better look but they were moving fast and were soon out of my line of site. I wish I had my camera!

During the walk back to the house, I considered what I thought I saw. Two birds, one very large and one smaller. Crows are large birds, I must have seen a crow and a blackbird. It couldn’t have been an eagle and a crow. Eagles are like the kings of the bird kingdom, would a crow actually chase one?

Yes, they would. I found a few articles online. This one from National Geographic has a photo very similar to what I witnessed today.

Nature never ceases to amaze me!
