Incoming Threat?!

This past week I saw a large group of assorted birds suddenly burst up out of the water in a panic and fly off in 50 different directions. A quick scan of the overhead sky revealed the reason. A bald eagle had come rapidly swooping in over the marsh and the smaller wading birds were taking no chances. Although it would be rare for an eagle to attempt to take one of these birds, they will still often instinctively flee at the first glimpse of an incoming large raptor.

From the look on it’s face, this bald eagle was clearly on a mission. So if that’s the impression I got, I’m sure the other birds concluded it would be wise to immediately vacate the area, just to be sure.
