All these images were taken during the Chico Goose Festival last week.EGL-HUHAbove: first year Bald Eagle stares at raven who has the effrontery to dine on HIS cross-bar.  Is this the sort of behavior that goaded one young eagle into seriously chasing a raven he had no chance of catching?
Below: another young eagle carrying duck, likely a wigeon.  That species was plentiful in the rice paddies where I got this shot and the bird had dark body with white wing patches.
