Heh. Sedgwick County Zoo (Wichita, where despite my Google account settings I don't live anymore) had a pair of eagles, back in the day. They suddenly took particular interest in the crowd, and we eventually figured out that they were eyeing *me* specifically. I could move from one end of the crowd to the other and they'd stare at me with what certainly looked like predatory interest, to everyone's amusement.

Later in the visit, I happened to glance down and realize I was wearing a shirt with an approximately-life-size bald eagle portrait on it.

Ah...so not prey but a possible BFF!

So we now know the artist was accurate in the fish picture. Or this is a newbie learning what fish is local and fresh.

Or a territorial interloper, yep. I think it was a male/female pair at the time, though of course they just have whoever's available and un-releasable from rehabbers.

Tempting as it was, I didn't wear that shirt to the zoo anymore, since I figured it probably stressed the birds having a "stranger" around.

Karen, if nothing else, you've proved that eagles are NOT "bird brains". Interesting.
