Ride in the forest
My other brother Tom joined Barry and I on a ride in the forest today. Barry mounted his chainsaw on his bike and we rode on up into the forest to cut some trees off the road that were blocking it.
We didn’t get far before we ran into the next tree to remove.
Then we rode around a bit and ended up here by our pond. Well, it’s a puddle but it’s the largest body of water on the property, so it’s our pond. I picked up the cam card here.
The only thing on the cam card was this grey squirrel getting a drink of water.
From there we rode over to where we saw the young bald headed eagle yesterday. I’d put a game cam there yesterday
This looks like a bobcat going by the dead turkey vulture which is on the right of it. It didn’t’ seem to be interested in the dead bird.
The eagle returns
This is what was on the cam, a few hours before we showed up today.
The young eagle lands and heads for the dead turkey vulture on the right.
It picks up the dead bird and carries it across the road.
And lands with it here where it eats it some.
I think it is trying to pick up the dead bird to pack it off which it did.
It hauls the dead bird carcass just a short distance down the road.
And lands it here to eat on it until we showed up and scared it off.
We showed up and Barry, being in the lead sees it fly off down over the bank.
I wished I’d set the cam on video for this. I think the video might get better pictures.
Anyway we rode off and rode around some more before Tom left us and went on home.
Barry and I cut these trees off the road.
Barry realized he’d left his phone up at our break area earlier. We took the chainsaw back to my house and then went for another ride to retrieve his cell phone and after that, rode all around the place again before heading back to my house.
We did go by the spot where the eagle was and I set the game cam on video so we’ll see if that gets better pictures of things.
