Bald Eagles preparing for lunch on Lake Taneycomo



Just had to share this extraordinary shot of two Eagles "preparing a fish lunch" in a tree on the bank of Lake Taneycomo yesterday. Shot was taken by passenger and sent in from the Captain Dave of Main Street Lake Cruises' Lake Queen while on a sightseeing cruise.

One of the most spatacular things I have seen on Taneycomo was an Eagle fishing. Not just fishing, but fishing very close to my boat. As I drifted down the lake there was a small trout floating on the surface. Presumably injured by someone trying to remove a deeply imbedded hook. I noticed an eagle high on a limb of a tree on the bluff side below short Creek. He dove down once, but shyed away from our boat. A minute later he threw caution aside, and swooped down within 20 feet of my boat to pick up the fish, and went back to his limb to consume it.. What a time to NOT have my camera. It was however an incredible thing to see.

One thing I'm looking forward to is the influx of bald eagles I've heard the area gets later in the fall. I saw my first one in the wild a few years ago when I was visiting my mother in Wisconsin and it was the dead of winter. Really surprised me it would be hanging around them parts with the lake and rivers froze up. But then I'm no bald eagle expert so I have really no idea what's normal and what's not.

Seeing a bald eagle in the wild is a truly great experience. I've seen a few around the state and only look to see more.
