LOL, I actually didn't know what bird a "Seahawk" was referring to.
However this one time a buddy of mine and I were fishing in a pond that was over populated with small largemouth bass. In an effort to thin the population out to help grow some bigger bass, we decided to toss all the little half pound bass we caught over to this osprey that had taken an interest in the fish we had been releasing up to that point. We ended up catching over 30 bass between the 2 of us and the osprey ate all of them. After he had his full he tried to fly across the pond but instead fell into the water due to his increased weight and instead resorted to swimming across the pond and pulling himself out by his wings on the other side.
It was funny at the time as we had had a few beers. We saw him flying around the next day at the pond so we knew he was ok. Those things apparently might actually eat themselves to death if they had the chance.
Well, sounds like you probably meant no harm in it... but, there are reasons you're not supposed to feed wildlife... even if you are merely aiding them to be gluttonous on something in their diet. It does tell me something further about you as a person that you would find humor in that whether you were intoxicated or not. Was that shared to try to impress anyone here? Sounds more like you're trying to stir trouble than be a welcome guest.
