The cranes last night by our pond. I see a bird large as an eagle fly twice over the top of them.
It's an adolescent eagle.
He is not being friendly eagles will kill cranes if they can.
The male cranes steps out and says 'Don't mess with me see how big I am" The crane often does this to the dogs through the fence, if I walk out he stops it and walks away.
Luckily the eagle flew off and I heard the mature pair of eagles on top of the radio antenna chatting at him.
The next morning I had this one visit my pond. He/She is checking out about why the young one was down here I'm sure. This is our resident eagle, been here for more years than we have.
Only stayed a few seconds then flew off.
