Angry Eagles


This morning, one of the bald eagles at the Fort St. Vrain nest was very upset about something.

She had several different calls. Some sounded like a song bird, others a little like a gull.

None were the bold dramatic call we hear in movies — that’s actually a red-tailed hawk.

My husband thinks there was a hawk nearby. Spreading her wings out like this looks like an attempt to look bigger than normal.

Her call here sounded a little like a goose.
She cried …
…and cried…
…and cried…
…and cried. She called incessantly for at least an hour.

I didn’t get to see what finally calmed her down. But when I checked the next day, all the eggs were still there.
