Bald Eagle with Fish: Len’s Pic of the Week

There are some Door County residents who aren’t happy with the lack of ice on the water, but for bald eagles it can mean a meal. It’s much easier to make a catch on open water. This bald eagle has just snatched a fish from Lake Michigan and is carrying it off somewhere safe to enjoy his meal. I watched this eagle hunt for about an hour along the lakeshore, making a few attempts at a fish but missing. This time he got his catch of the day.
