If you're going to keep a prey species as a pet don't be surprised when they're preyed upon.

Better luck next time, eagle.

Well, I saw the neighborhood hawk attack a goose, but there wasn't any breastfeeding woman in underwear

Uh... well, I went falconry hunting the other day, so I guess this is relevant to my interests?

/Not my raptors.
//Going for rabbits.
///Crazy interesting way to hunt, but way too much work to get into.

Somehow, since they lost three chickens in the week prior I dont think they were surprised.

Are you surprised to hear about the 3 chickens?

I expected at most 2 chickens, so yeah, 3 chickens really shocked me.

Well, I've imagined it that way lots of days.

I didn't think that an eagle would go after something so big.

She should be more careful.

Eagles prey on boobies, too.

Eagle One: I hear there might be some geese at that farm. Wanna check it out ?

Eagle Two; Yeah, I'll take a gander.

Cue Yakkity Sax!

But seriously, why would you want a goose around your house? Let the eagle eat.

Damned good thing she didn't trip running out the door.

Looks like that goose was beating the hell out of the eagle near the end
 
2022-05-18 11:10:27 AM  
There are way more geese than eagles, let the eagle have this one.

Seems kinda obvious.

Two wild animals are fighting, you stay out of it.

/Also, Bald Eagles are not endangered in Canada.  They are all over the place especially in Nova Scotia.

An injured/hungry predator might change their normal behaviour.  I saw a lynx going through my garbage at a cottage once.  Just outside my window.  So beautiful and rare to see.  Someone told me the only reason they would do that was if an injury was preventing them from hunting normally.

Ontario, too. We have a gazillion rabbits and squirrels around here, so the eagles and hawks are happy.

I am glad it had a happy ending.

Stupid eagle got greedy.

Mind, I am impressed that it tried--a goose is well beyond the average eagle's grasp. Eagles tend to get a lot of their prey by bullying smaller birds, like osprey, stealing their fish. I have seen that.

A lot of eagles in Alaska and BC follow fishing boats like dumpster divers on trash day.

They aren't nearly as romantic as you think. That's why Ben Franklin proposed the wild turkey as Ameria's official bird rather the Imperial Eagle that graces so many shields and flags in Old Europe.

The goose is a symbol of domesticity and protection. They make great guard dogs.

Saw a peregrine falcon (I think) eat a pigeon on a roof below me. I think it must have been a peregrime but I'm not so sure as I was. They have peregrines nesting on some towers, which are just like their natural roosts on cliffs. But there are hawks as well in the area. Not to mention turkeys.

I call them Tory birds because of the blue feet.

There are also Liberal birds (red footed boobies) and NDP birds (pink footed boobies).

And then there are the Trumpers birds (goonies).

Other way around.

Edgar speaks to Chauncey first.
