There’s always a critic…
Bald eagles are not worm-pickers. Fish, song birds and smaller raptors, mammals, and carrion are staples of their diets. (Worked at a raptor rehab center: never got to work with the baby eagles, but the fledgling owls were my favorites to hand feed.)
aah, yer mutha was a three-toed grebe!
If you don’t want to become extinct, you’ll eat what I give you, and like it.
It is not a criticism to point out misconceptions of any kind. Truth and its pursuit should be the higher goal, not the propagation of errors like this one. Bald Eagles eating worms? Seriously? I thought bird was an american symbol!
Eagles don’t regurgitate anything, they feed meat torn off the carcass.
Baby eagle = Beagle?
Even if the eagle was providing regurgitated worms, I don’t think I would argue. That mom looks like she is one complaint away from teaching her brood how to fly, all at the same time.
