Yes, I would not of believed that one. Eagles do not see children as prey.

It appears the Eagle snatching child was a fake:   http://news.discovery.com/animals/baby-snatching-eagle-video-goes-v...

Golden Eagle snatches child (but drops him)

Sorry, the embed code didn't work.

Interesting picture Melinda.  That squirrel doesn't seem to be bothered by the birds at all.

I've seen more colorful birds on this site that I thought existed, and so many interesting poses and actions.  Photoshop is a good program, but it's frustrating trying to decide what is real anymore.

Oh I know Ruth, that's why I put a question mark after the word sharing. lol.  That guy does NOT want the birds to have any, but it's such a cute picture. :)

Tony, these pictures are gorgeous!  I don't think that one looks photoshopped.

Hey Tony!
Wow Stunning beauty of a bird!
I'll see if I can look it up in my field guide or online.
Comment by Tony Carroll on December 18, 2012 at 11:23pm

Steph, or anyone. What kind of bird is this? Stunning.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on December 18, 2012 at 10:36pm

I disagree, booklover. The starlings are trying to horn in and squirrel isn't sharing.

Comment by Steph S. on December 18, 2012 at 10:26pm

oh wow!! Such wonderful pictures. Thank you!!

Booklover - I love the mammal sharing with the birds.

Tony - I don't think that is Photoshopped.

Tony - I love the owl with the wings outstretched and the sea birds photo. Need to get my field guide to identify.
