Lately these fine feathered friends have been showing up all over in the trees...One day I had 5 Bald Eagles and one big big Golden sitting in the trees right outside my office window...
Not only is it because of all the dead deer that have died with our tough winter conditions- but they love to keep and eye on where I feed at and get a tasty pheasant, grouse, or hun for an appetizer...
They usually show up in rough winters- and scavenger all the dead deer- which I don't mind-- but I do not like them hanging around after I start calving...Never had a problem- but they do give me the willies....One day I looked out where a cow had just had a calf- and 50 feet away were two bald eagles... They were just after the blood and afterbirth--but it sure got my heart to pumping...That year there was about a dozen that hung around until after the snow thawed all off....
