Do you remember the old Wonderful World of Color show on Sunday evening television (dating myself)?
Sometimes it would show an elegant, proud eagle flying in, wings stretched out in regal glide over a frozen lake. Landing appears to be pure perfection until regal eagle slips onto its tush and slides on ice for 15 feet. That's what it's like on Tule Lake!
This one was not so happy after such a humiliating landing!
Don't laugh at them. They get mad and leave!
Assured of less humiliating landing. Eagles are fun to photograph but they're very thin-skinned when it comes to humor.
Maybe if the hawks didn't laugh so loud, the mighty eagles could have a little chuckles now and again at their own expense!
