Amazing close up eagles in Hinckley, Ohio

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.
Incredible!

Feeding the Eagles!

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

As you know, it was not too long ago that the American Bald Eagle was an endangered species.

    I’m curious about the strange wording in this article: Hinckley, Ohio is NOT close to Rocky River and Lake Erie. It may have been cold in Hinckley, but that does not put it on Lake Erie. Also Google Maps doesn’t seem to show any beach in front of private homes close to the Rocky River and Lake Erie – a couple of parks, yes, but not homes facing the lake.

    Nonetheless the photos and event are noteworthy. Eagles and Osprey are seen on the rivers in Pittsburgh.

    Homer Alaska, not Hinckley, OHio (which as one reply states, is inland, and not near the river. Hinkley is where the ‘Buzzards come home to roost.’
