Gobind Sagar Bhardwaj was observing a group of Sambar Deer near an artificial waterhole in Sariska Tiger Reserve, Rajasthan when suddenly the silence of forest was broken with alarm calls of peafowls, which also around the waterhole. He noticed a peahen being attacked by a Bonelli’s Eagle and was forced to retreat into the water. The peahen was fully drenched as it struggled to escape the eagle. After a few minutes the eagle again tried to catch the neck of the peahen in its talons even when a peafowl tried to swoop over this eagle to save its mate (?) The wet peahen was finally dragged out of water and eaten by the eagle.
