Eagle and Prey

Winner of the 2009 Wildlife Magazine Photo Contest, this image was taken in Northeast Colorado. Photographer Robert M. Palmer said "I noticed a group of eagles at a local cattle feedlot and saw them climbing up into the air and actually catching starlings and blackbirds. I think there may have been something wrong with the birds since this is not a usual prey item for eagle. The experience lasted one week, then the eagles left the area."
