I wonder if the handler ever thinks..."Mmmm, I wonder if today he'll change his mind, leave the food and take my eye out just for fun...."

It was impressive when it was flying straight towards us at head height at one point grinning

OMG, this beak - maybe the chicken and the eye of the handler isn't enough?!
Beautiful!

There were two handlers on the day and they said that the eagle (by the way this is a Steller Sea Eagle) forms an attachment with one and tends to be more aggressive with the other... wouldn't want to be "the other"!

It was great to see a big eagle like this so close.

Has to be a fav!
And what a ghastly thought!
Handlers must therefore be on best behaviour at all times.

Apparently it really didn't like one of the handlers and he was VERY careful.
