Bald eagles, like many other successful predators, are opportunists. This mated pair have discovered that they can be very successful hunting mallard ducks on the Fraser River in southwest British Columbia. I witnessed the female eagle (the larger of the two) capture a female mallard near the river bank, kill it quickly with her talons, and take her prey to a nearby piling, where it was quickly plucked, and fed upon. The image shows her mate trying to get a turn, but unlucky for him, his mate hadn’t had her fill. The image was captured in Delta, BC, Canada, using a Nikon D700 camera body and Nikkor 600 mm lens with a 1.4 teleconverter mounted on a Gitzo monopod.
