SWFL Eagles ~ Ninja Turtle Escapes Overboard From Eagle's Nest!!! ?? ?? ??10.22.20

Lady Hawk - M15 flies in with a live mud turtle and was planning on eating it but then we hear E15 squeeing in the distance. E15 comes in too low and has to circle around and then lands on the nest and claims the turtle. M heads to the veranda and attic as E15 tries to figure out what to do with it - opting to leave it on the nest. E15 flies to the attic squeeing at Dad asking why he brought her a shell instead of a fish lol ?? We have some excellent closeups of the mud turtle on its back turning over and then slowly walking towards the side of the nest. The turtle has no clue where it is as it approaches the edge ~ it looks down and then falls overboard and to the ground at 10:44. Hopefully the turtle survived and can make its way back to the pond tomorrow! M15 will take off to the west pasture to roost and E15 flew to the front drive mossy oak tree. Thank you for watching!
