More carp, live ones this time, and an eagle

The other day, I was walking along Alder Creek, which runs behind our property here in New Dundee, and I happened to spot a group of around 40 carp, just swimming gently to keep up with the current. The water was unusually clear and the fish were close enough to shore that I took a short video of them and posted it to YouTube.

The eagle is the large blob surrounded by smaller blobs which are crows. Sorry for the poor photo; the window doesn’t open and the double-glazing has fogged up internally.

Two days later I saw a bald eagle perched on a tree over pretty much the same area of the creek. This is not likely to be a coincidence; one of those carp would make a tasty meal for an eagle!
