SWFL Eagles ~ E16's AMAZING STEAL!!! Flies Off Nest With Fish In Beak! 8.7.20

8/8/2020 3:05:10 PM

Lady Hawk - This was a really incredible steal by E16 today and action packed delivery! M15 is flying towards the nest with a fish and both E15 & E16 drop to the nest - but M keeps flying so they give chase screaming after him. M circles around and lands on the nest followed by E15 and E16 ends up below the nest. E16 is mad that E15 got the fish and is screaming and trying to figure out how to get up to the nest. E16 flies off and circles around and lands on the attic. E15 is mantling her fish and defending it as E16 scopes out the situation...ultimately dropping to the nest to make a steal. E15 warns E16 to stay away but fearless E16 goes in and makes a backwards steal! Not only does E16 steal the fish but he retains possession of it and eats! E15 tries unsuccessfully to make a steal and get the fish back by going underneath E16 - all attempts were thwarted! Then in a remarkable moment, E16 flies off the nest with the fish in his beak to the cam 2 tree to eat it! Awesome job E16!!! This was an important lesson to be learned and E16 has been paying attention and was smart learning to fly off and away from the nest. E15 probably would have stolen it back if E16 stayed. Valuable lessons for E15 learned today too!! Congratulations E16 on your successful steal! Both E's will be awesome hunters one day! Thank you for watching!
