Unknown Food Object, that is. It was sunset, aka The Golden Hour for photographers. The light could not have been better, and this lone eagle spotted something on the shore. Yummy or yucky? One of the interesting things about living along the edge of the ocean is that ANYTHING could wash up on shore, or come in with the tide. Anybody out there have a clue what he found?
He ate pieces of it for quite a while, and then decided he wanted to try to carry it away, but it was too heavy. So he toyed with it for a while, tossed it around, ate a bit more, and then flew off, leaving it on the shore for the crows. I think I see wings and a long neck, so possibly a Canada Goose.

Great series Ian - thanks for sharing. That last shot showed me something I'd never noticed before and that's just how muscular looking those talons are. I'm always aware of how sharp they are for the kill, but I never think about the force driving those "knives."

Thanks Dan, he did have his fill, believe me.

Agreed on that Al. I've had guesses from muskrat to another eagle, goose, and cormorant. Whatever it was must have been dead for a while. I have to go see if there's any left tonight before dark.
