This was the fourth time I've witnessed an Eagle trying to take a Honker down..(I've seen them actually grabbing them twice, and ride them down).
Last week we had a flock feeding in area corn stubble since we had little to no snow cover on the fields here.
I was walking out in the yard when I heard geese, I saw them right away and noticed they were really flying hard!...right off I could tell they were being chased..thats when I noticed a huge eagle right behind them a few hundred they got closer, I could tell the Bald Eagle was gaining ground, what strong birds they they proceeded beyond the tree tops, I wondered how long it would be before a goose broke away, and became dinner.
