Heading down High Street is no longer safe...
At telephone pole height an adult eagle was playing cat and mouse with a bunch of crows right down the middle of the road.
It took me a minute to pull over and lo and behold he pulled over too... for just a minute...

This was in Churchland. I think it was Portsmouth at this point. It was actually at the point where High Street became Churchland Blvd.
Pretty cool! So where did you get edumacated on mobbing?? That is surely what was transpiring...

Great photo - could be the eagle that was recently spotted at Hoffler Creek Refuge. There used to be a nesting pair there. Little known place.

Thank you for sharing.

My goodness...what a heart racing moment! Great job of stopping to grab a shot Image
I had the same thought as Chris, too...how opportune Reese had just posted his Blog and you have first hand experience
