As I get to watch the Eagle's at the lake near my home I become more interested in their behaviors. I post a photo the other day of two of the three standing on the ice. They stayed there for hours with the larger ( female?) of the three flying off when ever some one drove too near. ( The road goes all around our tiny lake so we are not very far from the center of the end of the lake where our boat dock is )
Someone asked me what the Eagles might be doing just standing there and I believe in my uneducated opinion that due to their fishing habits I have seen at the lake earlier that they were in face waiting for fish to pop up near the surface of the ice where small circles of unfrozen water was.
I wondered if my theory was correct and went in search of more information on these awesome birds.The most know fact I think concerning Eagles is the fact that they mate for life, unless a mate is lost to a death. The funny thing to me about that is, I do not know anyone who has mated for life except my parents and a few of my Aunts and Uncles.
And today when I was at my Uncles Dick' Blog ( Dick Summer Connection) his post had much to do with mating for life. He truly loves and adores my Aunt and I know the feeling is mutual for LWW ( Lady Wonder Wench as she is called by her adoring hubby the Pilot)
Can we as a species say that a million years from now we will be monogamous as the eagles are? I would lay money on the fact that no matter how the eagle evolved the one thing that will never change is that they mate for life.
This I believe is the best thing we can attain to, for that coupling is where our strength comes from just as it does for the American Bald Eagle.
