I'm waiting for the Tea Partiers to come in and say that this is a clear allegory for taxation. The eagle (aka the government) swoops in and takes the man's hard earned bounty. Nothing like working and working and finally earning something, only to have that damned eagle snatch it from your grasp!

I can't decide if I need more coffee or less.

I can't figure this out: The FISHERMAN says he took the pictures... but the photographs are clearly taken from another boat looking at him.

Something ain't right here.

Interceptor1: This past Thursday evening I watched an osprey catch a large catfish and fly about 50' up on its way to its nest and a bald eagle swooped up under the osprey and snatched the fish. Then about a half dozen other bald eagles swarmed in on the thief to try to steal it for themselves.

Eagles might look nice but they're no better than seagulls or pigeons.


We see them for most of the year where I live too. I also agree that bald eagles are the assholes of the air most of time. Picking off smaller birds and scavenging anything they can steal away from everything else. They also drove the red tail hawks out of the area and took over their nests. They truly are the symbol of the United States.

"For my own part I wish the Bald Eagle had not been chosen the Representative of our Country. He is a Bird of bad moral Character. He does not get his Living honestly. You may have seen him perched on some dead Tree near the River, where, too lazy to fish for himself, he watches the Labour of the Fishing Hawk; and when that diligent Bird has at length taken a Fish, and is bearing it to his Nest for the Support of his Mate and young Ones, the Bald Eagle pursues him and takes it from him."

That's way cooler than catching half a fish because a shark took the other half.

Don't you Americans have guns for this sort of thing?
