Bald Eagles

In January of this year, 2013, the weather stayed so cold in Hinckley, Ohio on the shores of Lake Erie & Rocky River. that the bald eagles were cruising over houses in hopes of a quick meal. They could not access fish that were at the bottom of the river and had gathered together.

Some kind souls decided to feed the eagles so they would survive the cold spell. They gathered fish and started feeding the group of eagles huddled on the shore.

The photos below show what happened. A former teaching colleague took these photos in front of his home. Incredible!

A beautiful morning feeding the eagles, Jan. 2013

Once the fish were thrown, the eagles did not seem to fear the good Samaritans and  word spread fast!

No zoom lens used here! The photographer was this close!

Here are the men who were feeding them. So close!!
