HABITS OF THE SEA EAGLE.
This species of the en?!e is much more com
mon on the west coast of Sutherland than the gol
den eagle. Scarcely a day passes m winter but
on- or more are to be seen in front o this house
(Loch Inver Inn.) soarinar in the air looking: out
lr dead fish which may be cast on the sea beach

sheep for a change. In
spring they secure a
t .:r..i .nnl of tender fl-sh by devouring
voung lambs; in summer they feast on fawns,
voun hares, and the young of the different sea
birdsrsqehas gull, gnllamots, puffins, &c, and m
the autumn of the year they take to the shallow
fords of the different rivers in search of salmon,
which they secure in very shallow water, spaw
in" Here you may see one or more seated on a
rock, or a large stone, patiently awaiting his prey
until an opportunity offers, when he will dart on
it and bear it off to some secure place, thre to
feed upon it. I one day waicttt-d one for five
hours, sitting on the same' stone, till the evening
closed in. when he left, no doubt for his resting
place. Next morning I was in my old seat be
fore daybreak. When scarcely clear enough to
distinguish the stone, my old friend made his ap
pearance. Here 1 again watched him for at least
two hours; my feet were as cold as ice. I could
not have slalki d him had I been willing, for the
wind wa contrary, and eagles I knew to be as
difficult to stalk as deer when the wind may be
unfavorable; but even though the wind had been
favorable I had another object in view, and that
to see how he managed to secure his scalyprey.
Suddenly he arose from the stone, and suspended
himself "for a moment in the air, about twenty
yaids from the surface ofth water; here he let
his lews hang loosely from his body ; he then in
stantly pounced on the fish, which appeared to be
then in not more than a foot or so of water, and
carried him off At this moment he was joined
by a hooded crow, then by another and another,
till they amounted to ten, one making a dart at
him now, and another then, sometimes three or
four at a lime, keeping up a noisome talk of caw,
caw, evidently fearmg to strike, though often
very near. This was no doubt tane in order to
induce him to drop the fish, so th'-y might regale
themselves at his expense. They now became
so very troublesome and impudent that our no
ble friend thought he could not proceed farther, so
he alighted on the inp of a hillock close by, and
there bade them defiance. Now 1 saw very lit
tle chance for me to get near him, but thought I.
would try, and after some little difficulty succeed
ed in getting to within about 100 yards of him,
but further I could not get, the ground being too
even. After resting myself for a minute, and.
looking out through a tuft of heather, I bethought
myself of a plan which I had often heard proved
successful in deer stalking. When a person
stalks a deer to within 100 yards or so, and can
not get nearer, which is often the case, lor want
of uneven ground to screen himself, be is to cock
his gun and watch the deer till he is looking some
other way or feeding. Then he is to run at all
his speed, and ten to one he gains some 20 yards.
The deer hears him and looks round to see what
it is. Then is his chance to fire; if there is more
than one. this plan will not do, unless they are ly
ing anl then he may gain 40 or 50 yards be
fore they get up Returning to" my subject, the
eagle, he had now begun to feed; my friends, the
crows, seeing me and flying around me, and mak
ing a great clamor. When his head was down,
I ran at all my speed, gaing some 40 yards, and
jttst as he was in the act of taking wing, I fired
my right barrel at him, which brought a shower
of feathers in my face and made him drop his
fish. I then discharged my left barrel, but this
did not stop him, however, he only flew a hund
red yards when he dropped down quite dead.
By this lime my old grey friends had dispersed,
and 1 was left alone with the fish, which was a
salmon, as red as alox, and would have weighed
above six pounds.
In the year 1845 my friend, D. Gilchrist, Esq ,
of Ospeldale, had an eagle of this species, which
' he kept in a house in his garden for wore than- 2
years. His feeding being rather expensive, cost
ing him in that time at least one hundred sheen

He became rather sociable, but never tame enough
to justify his being let loose. There were sever
al cats that came to visit him, andUo share with
him in his fish meals. Three of those he manag"
ed to kill and eat, though 1 had never an oppor
tunity of seeing how he managed to capture them,
but supposed that they had ttome to steal away
some of his fish, and he having somehow got
hold of them with his powerful talons, made them
pay for their impudence by forfeiting their lives.
This may be inferred from the following cir
cumstance, which took place soon afterwards: -Ah
old gent, a Mr. Rogers, a friend of niinet came
to visit me at Bonar Bridge. He had a fine bull
terrier which was nnmed Guard, and which . he
said was one of the bravest dogs in Scotland. I
asked my friend to come and see the eagle, Guard
wiiowmg us. From the way which Guard lodlrv

eaSle- I asked my friend to take the dog by the

' J looked rather shy at the bird, and so did ihe
Guard, as much as to say you have no bu-

see wh it he would do1 when my friend replied,
;f hp is let loose, he will kill the eagle in an in
stant. My rep'y vva3 "Never mind," well krow-

the e:ig'e got hold of Guard by the neck with one
of his alons, then on the side with the other, Guard
crvinar and howling in a most pitiful manner all
the while. Poor Guard would not have lasted
long were we. not so close to him, and by chok
ing the eagl'i ad with the assistance of pliers
succeeded in rescuing the poor dog. The claws
of the eagle met in the dog's neck. I really be
have if he had been left for fifteen minutes longer
he would have made a good meal of the brave
There is scarcely a precipitous rock or high
headland on this coast where one or more of this
species d not breed. They also build in the
islands of fresh water lakes, and in the high rocks
which overhang many of the inland seas. The
nest is composed of sticks and moss. When sticks
are nut convenient, they supply the place with
dried tangles and seaweed. They lay two white
eggp. with sometimes a few small red spots on the
round end. The eggs are about the size of the
golden eagle's, but more oval in form. In the
wild state this eagle is said to be more partial to
fish than flesh, and on the many solitary streams
in this country they fin?d luxuriantly on large bull
trout and salmon, which they take on their spawn
ing beds. ' -
I have repeatedly taken the eggs of this species
from their nests, which are in general much more
acc sfible thno that of the golden eagle, though in
some instances equally as difficult. Stonehead,
Capi vyralh, Farouthopt, Whilenhead, and Dun-
neth'-ad, are sure to have one or'mnre pairs breed
ing in their rocks every season. My fnend, John
VVooley, Esq., of Derbyshire, an indefatigable nat
uralist' and thorough gentleman, visited the north
l:st 4pril in search of rare bird's eggs. I acci
dentally met him at the hotel in Thurso, and next
day accompanied hun to the eagles nest at Dun-
neihead. On our way thither he spoke of going
down the rock for the eggs, but, pardon me, I
thought he had come fiom too tame a country to
think of going down such an awful precipice.
Duunethead is a tork to the east of Thurso, and
is at least 400 fei.t high, and where the white
swelling breakers resound against the roeks in'
awful magnificence. Indied, few men can ven
ture to look over the piecipice. However, if my
friend did not choose to go down for the pggs, I
would, and volunteered to go for him, -but he de
clined my off.?r, and would rather go himself. We
had brought rop s from Thurso sufficiently strong
to liuld a bullock, and throe men to hold on, whilst
I was to stand on the brink of the rock to see how
he g't dnwn, and give directions to the men above.
I lashed him secure to the rope, and down he
went, and in a few minutes to my delight held
one of the eggs in his hand. After, collecting a
few of the materials of which the nest was com
posrd. I gavedirections to the men above to haul
upy'rien be oon arrived safely at the top. Mr.
Wc-tlev went down many rocks equally difficult
afieU'ards. Indeed, I think lie would undertake
to ct) tin or down many rocks in the country, how
ever high or inaccessible, were an eagle's nest of
feree him as the pnz .
The length of an adult female is thirty-three
incbes. the male considerably shorter: the breadth
of fring frequently eight feet; the beak light,
horn and eyes yellow; the body ashey giey ; tne

to preserve these memorials; for it often occurs in the

are controverted by the next, and at a succeeding period
are considered as doubtful legends, unworthy of histori
