Crow hitches a ride on a Bald Eagle! Pacific Northwest Ubird?
No? So what's really going on here? The crow is harassing the Bald Eagle to try and scare him away from the crow's favorite fishing grounds. Did it work? Well, for a few minutes it did, then the eagle came back.
You may have seen a photo like this before. Several of my friends posted one like it to my timeline on FB. So, is it really a "once in a lifetime shot" as the meme claims? Well, yes, and no. Sort of, in that it's the best shot I've gotten of this behavior so far. But no, it's not uncommon, it's just tricky to get a good photo of it.
