Eagle and the Red Wing Black Bird photos by Maureen Moore.

Maureen Moore took these photos last week and writes:
"I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried. I was checking on the eagles nest today and spotted one of the nesting eagles in a tree. I watched as this little bird (a red wind blackbird) flew around the eagle almost in an attempt to annoy it. While watching this little bird I thought either this bird is very brave or a little crazy. I have a feeling they may be friends judging by the lack of reaction from the eagle. Enjoy."
