    Notice the Eagle starts his attack from behind and slightly below. Guess the rules are the same for all winged warfare.

    These are some of my favorite comments, and I really laughed at some of them.

    Clearly "Marie" is an idiot. And "John" isn't too smart either. It's an eagle, John, not a shark!!!

    Fantastic pics

    Very cool pics! While I knew that in theory eagles took birds the only pics I had ever seen were of taking fish. Thanks!

    Once saw a Hawk drop into my back yard to take a rodent (not sure what kind, didn't get a look at the target). Was watching TV and just saw the thing drop like brick into the yard out a large set of French Doors off my back deck. It went down so fast I thought for a second it was hurt. By the time I got up and go over to see what had happened, it was flying away with a rodent in it's claws.

    Fast man, really fast.

    Went over and yelled at the cat(s) for letting the rodent population get that closed to the house. They took it very well ("FU Pal").

    We have hawks and falcons all over the place here in Dallas/FortWorth. They're all the time sitting on top of lights along the freeways. I watched one swoop down into the median one day on my trip home....sucker looked like it was on an invisible bungee cord, it bounced back in the air so fast (wiggly-furry bundle in claws, of course!)!!!

    WoW Eric, great find!

    Hats off to Rob Palmer for those incredible shots!

    And as for the comments...they are proof that the human race has a collective IQ of a kitchen sponge. Anytime you have doubts, just read the comments on any of those sites...

    As far as Eagles go, I watched one years ago dive on the neighbor's cat as it was crossing the road...the cat never saw the Bald Eagle coming until it was too late...I thought that was exceptionally cool (especially since I hated that cat)...

    Erm, I'm pretty sure there are no Bald Eagles in Lancashire. There are also one or two native Raptors in Britain.............
