do eagles feel emotions?
If we judge emotions by facial expressions, then the answer is yes!
In the photo above, Mom looks wistful. There is no sign of the fierceness that we usually associate with Bald Eagles.
In this photo Mom has a look of determination. She sees something she wants and you know she will get it!
In the photo above, Mom is clearly angry! If Mom ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!
I see fear and worry in Mom's eyes in this photo. It is a look that you never want to see in an animal that you love. She is almost always on guard surveying the area for threats.
This is one of the last photos that I took of Dad. You can almost see the sadness in his eyes. Perhaps he knew that he was ill. We miss him every day!
