Watched an adult Bald Eagle trying to take a Ruddy Duck along the shoreline of Mono Lake. Diving and hovering over the shallows for five minutes, the eagle was unsuccessful. The Ruddy Duck would dive underwater in the same location, eluding the eagle at the last moment. The duck made no attempt to flee after the eagle gave up and rested on a tufa mound not 15 yards away.
