bird-1 bird-2 bird-3 bird-4 bird-5

A sequence of images captured last year at Kitsap, Washington by photographer Phoo Chan. Sez he:

Crows are known for aggressively harassing other raptors that are much bigger in size when spotted in their territories and usually these ‘intruders’ simply retreat without much fuss. However, in this frame the crow did not seem to harass the bald eagle at such close proximity and neither did the bald eagle seem to mind the crow’s presence invading its personal space. What made it even more bizarre was that the crow even made a brief stop on the back of the eagle as if it was taking a free scenic ride and the eagle simply obliged.

    I presume crime is down 75% in the vicinity since these two bad asses hooked up, ya?

      My otherwise fearless Jack Russell won’t go near their bit of green in front of the gaff.

    If I was that eagle, I would check my back for **** afterwards. They always seem to nail my car.
