What do you do when your dinner is frozen into the ice of the bay? Well, you stand on it, and pull on it, and dig around it and get whatever bits you can.

Amazing! It's found a frozen fish and dug it out. I wouldn't have believed that if I hadn't seen it. Very interesting series thanks.

I don't think it's a fish - unless they come with very big canine teeth in Nova Scotia! Very interesting shots - thanks for sharing :)

I'd like to see the fish around your place! Thanks for the comment - it's likely a coyote carcass, it was out back of a house where a trapper lives.

That is one heck of a find there (for you AND the Eagle), Ian!

Super series Ian. The eagle shots alone would have been great but the addition of the frozen dinner really sets it above.

Very cool indeed! Whatever it was the Eagle seems to be enjoying it. :)

Thanks very much Eric, Al, Don & Craig! What was also interesting was when I was thinking about comments I was reading earlier about how woodpeckers use their tails to balance with. This eagle was doing the same thing, as he pulled on his dinner, he would use his tail on the ice to give him more leverage to pull with. It was real interesting and you can see it in #1 above, and this one :

That is awesome. Not sure what it has, but it looks like a small dog, especially if you look at #7 closer.

It was interesting, Andrew. I gave up and left as he was still digging around there. I stayed about 20 minutes. Thanks for commenting.

Thanks, Trevor. It could have been a dog, but I'm still leaning toward coyote.
