Went on a road trip looking for eagles. DH saw one in tree so we took off down a dirt road. He let me out and at first I stood by the fence an took pics of it,it was about 1/4 mile away. It was huge! Then against my gut feeling I walked out aways into the field to take more. It was in a tree in the middle of a field. Anyway a guy came out and ask me to leave. He said people came there all them time to take pics of the eagles. It's right by a chicken house. He said his chickens were getting sick thought maybe because people were traipsing around in his field. I told him I'm sorry and I left. He was nice about it.
I wanted to say why are you feeding the eagles with the dead sick chickens but I kept my mouth shut!
I did take pics but I can't figure out how to size them to fit here yet. It's a new camera with a 300zoom lens but still to far away.
Sorry this is so long!!

OOP!... guess you'll ask next time if its ok. I know Bob Anderson in Decorah always asks the homeowners permission if he happens to see the one they have fitted with a transmitter. I don't think he's ever been turned down. Sorry.. I don't know how to re size the pictures either.

Pic of the eagle I hope. It was huge. Not great but I'm still learning photo shop to get it small enough to post here. This camera must have a setting for smaller pics but just haven't found it yet!!

Eagles eat dead animals all the time. Often see them on the roadside on a carcas.

I always use 'Paint' to resize my photos, if you have a windwos PC.

Gorgeous eagle. If his chickens are getting upset, maybe it's cuz the eagle is hanging around, not people taking pics. Big Grin

Oh, most assuredly. The chickens couldn't care less about the people, but the eagle? That'd stir them up big time.

I'm surprised he's throwing the dead chickens out like that. In Florida they're required to be incinerated. At least that's what my brother did when he raised chickens.

FFG, different states, different health laws. One dairy here drags dead cows to a ravine and lets the buzzards pick them clean. Nasty place!

SB, you picture is fantastic! At least the guy was nice and not rude like some are. Also, if you decide to cross a fence again, make sure you check for any bulls in the pasture! Big Grin (wink, wink)

Wonderful picture. It's very clear. I'm glad that you are learning to use the new camera.......wow, a 300 zoom lens.

Hehee, Karen is right. Around here, most people don't mind you walkng across their pastures, but you sure need to take notice of the resident bulls. Sometimes they mind a whole lot.

LOL I knew there wasn't any bulls there wasn't a gate!! I'll not be going into any fields again. I know better just don't do better Smile! Told DH if he didn't want people in there he should but up a gate!!!
He said the chickens were SICK not scared.
Maybe the eagle around there is scaring them enough they are getting sick!! Sure would scare me!!!
Thanks ve I'm still learning
