In the movie "The Big Year" about BIRDERS...
they showed a pair of Eagles just like this only with their feet actually entwined as they fell through the air, in what was indeed an act of mating... according to the film.. . it was actually really cool, as I'd never seen anything like it, and would not have known what this was, had I not just seen the film! :D

Brilliant catch! :boogie:

That seems to be the most logical explanation
This is(I think) the same two as in these shots

RIght yes, one of them I'd seen and faved before...

but this shot here is truly amazing, :omg:

By the way, if anyone likes birds at all "The Big Year" is one to rent... [since it's out for rental now]

and it is about birds and birding, but also so much more... wonderful film. :aww:

Spent most of my life outdoors , seen many eagles ,hawks owls etc. etc. I've seen crows pestering eagles & hawks by dive bombing them & flying circles around them but have never seen anything quite like this . Lucky you to not only have seen it but also have the presence of mind to photograph it . Well done .

Any idea as to why they did this ? Part of a mating ritual maybe ?

Thank you
As you know with wildlife photography it's at least 80% luck
And in this case I was just following them down the river with a 70-300 lens and snapping as fast as I could

I would say that yes it had meaning.This is (I believe) the same two as were in this series of shots[link]

Now THAT is definitely Mating related so it's logical enough to extrapolate that the new shot is "More" friskiness

I'm as interested as you are in learning more so I can better predict where and when I can find them for future shoots

Any thoughts?
