Being bold

Today’s bloganuary prompt: What does it mean to live boldly?

Here is some small birds living boldly. What do you think?

The Wedge-tailed Eagle is the largest Eagle in Australia and the third largest in the world, with a wing span of just under 210cm or seven feet.

Smaller birds aren’t impressed when a Wedge-tailed Eagle invade their space and will swoop and dive.

Even if the Wedge-tailed Eagle has found it’s lunch, there’s no peaceful place to eat.

In Australia Pied Magpies are well know for their territorial swooping of anything from small dogs, people and even Wedge-tailed Eagles

  1. He’s awesome! I love seeing this phenomenon in spring when the eagles and hawks converge on the Refuge to what they might think are easy meals. The TINY (in comparison) red-winged blackbird tolerates NOTHING from these immense raptors.

    1. The eagle is carrying a Eastern Water Dragon. My presence made it fly away carrying its lunch. It’s then that the other birds went for it.
      1 To get it away from their territory and
      2 To hopefully make it drop its lunch so they could get it.
      Their feathers are just fabulous. I keep looking at patterns, shades and shapes too πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      1. I was driving home in the afternoon and I saw the eagles just off the road. I stopped a way off but when I opened the car door they took flight, one with the Water Dragon. I watched for around a minute until they were out of sight.
