The resident Bald Eagle at the Cobleskill Reservoir, on his way back to the nest where there are three eaglets. Normally an eagle will carry the fish with it's talons due to many facts. The talons are used to grab and subdue it's prey. A fisherman tossed this fish to him, it wasn't very big, so he grabbed it with his beak & flew away.
