Juvenile Eagle: A Lesson in Patience!

Juvenile bald eagle is patiently biding his time, waiting for the most opportune moment to swoop down into the Susquehanna River, to grab dinner for the evening! We watched "Earl" for almost an hour and then he swiftly and stealthily left his perch and skimmed the water.... he was rewarded for his patience! Stunning to witness! P.S. It doesn’t end well for the catfish!
