My office at work has the best window. I get to see moose and moose calves in the spring, an occasional feral cat and kittens, eagles, ravens and numerous chickadees. Yesterday was an eagle, raven, and magpie day.
The ravens and magpie kept harassing this poor eagle. You can see the magpie in the lower right just below the eagle - it kept creeping up and nipping at the eagle's tail feathers. Then he'd swing around and snap at it. The ravens were flying in and out, getting close but staying far away from that big beak. It was fun to watch.
Two other people came into my office to watch also, so it is a bit distracting to getting work done. Last summer I painted this picture for my friend who was retiring. This is that same spot with a very similar story, except in this one there were no magpies.
