  1. As we would say in Maine, that is some picture. I think it even deserves a “wowsah!”

    1. πŸ™‚Thank you!πŸ™‚ It was one of those great birdwatching mornings out on the lake where I rushed home afterwards and was thrilled to discover a majority of the photos of the red-winged blackbirds chasing the eagle were not blurry.πŸ™‚

  3. what kind of bird is that? It almost looks like a type of Parrot? Eagles are constantly being attacked by other birds. Mostly Crows. Now that I look maybe it’s a red winged black bird?

    1. A group of red-winged blackbirds were determined to keep the eagle away from their nesting area. Afterwards when I looked at a few of my blurry photos of the eagle flying right over my head, my first thought was of all your perfect shots of Daredevil flying toward you and hoping I have a chance at another fabulous morning like this paddling after an eagle.πŸ™‚

      1. congratulations! It takes a lot of work but once you figure things out it does become easier! You did a excellent job! Very few of us search for Baldies. They are a tough bird to get close to…….takes years!

      4. We kayak, but after that morning my niece said we need to buy a boat.😁

      5. This would not work since my niece keeps her distance when I’m photographing the swans and definitely believes one of these days a swan is going to chase me around the lake.😁

      6. ok,you can still make a single kayak with a outrigger and use a 2Hp electric engine side mounted. If you have a tandem you can keep the battery in the second compartment.
        More than enough power to do what you want I bet.

      7. I’ll think about the electric engine or maybe a pedal kayak so I can always have the camera ready.πŸ™‚

      8. Thanks for the video, but I think I agree with my niece, we need to buy a boat.😁

      9. ok,I understand…..it will be more money. Get a brand new engine, no secondhand stuff.
        I assume you have a boating licence?

      10. It was a beautiful morning today on the lake with little wind and I was able to paddle around with a cormorant, so I’m sticking with my kayak.😁

      11. yes,I think that would be the best idea. I paddle around in a canoe myself. I even have a small engine I can put on but haven’t done that in years. The best plans should always have simplicity.

  6. Awesome shot. I’ve seen little birds harassing bigger ones before, but never close enough for a picture and never with an eagle.
