I’m so sad – that is one of my favorite birds. I didn’t know Bald Eagles would grab a bird like that. I heard of something similar happening awhile back in California with a rare bird, where it flew up while everyone was watching, and got snatched by a raptor in mid-air… wish they only fed on Starlings, House Sparrows and Eurasian Collared Doves…
For those of us who follow other state Alerts. don't bother traveling to Seattle to see the rare Ross's Gull. A Bald Eagle ate it!!! See Jon Hougton's post on eBird WA alerts for photograph of the gull being carried off. Sorry not in Idaho but case of truth being stranger than fiction!!
