EAGLES on shore of Lake Erie….‏

January of this year, 2013, the weather stayed so cold in Hinckley, Ohio on the shores of Lake Erie & Rocky River. that the bald eagles were cruising over houses in hopes of a quick meal. They could not access fish that were at the bottom of the river and had gathered together.

Some kind souls decided to feed the eagles so they would survive the cold spell.
They gathered fish and started feeding the group of eagles huddled on the shore.

The photos below show what happened. A friend  took these photos in front of his home.

Feeding the Eagles!

Once the fish were thrown, the eagles did not seem to fear the good Samaritans and word spread fast!
