A Bald Eagle On The Hunt For Blue-winged Teal

I watched this Bald Eagle for over an hour flying low over a marsh. It was trying to grab something out of the water but it was in a thick grass area and I couldn’t see what it was at first. This Eagle made a grab 10 times and on the 10th time it came up with a Blue-winged Teal. It flew off with its back to me and I wasn’t able to get a good photo but I could see that it did have a Blue-winged Teal.

    Mia, it sure was and I have to hand it to the duck for surviving as long as it did.
