On my way back from town today I noticed a bunch of ravens by the side of the road - a clear indication of road kill and breakfast for the birds. As I got closer I noticed a white headed bird flying away as well. I stopped and got out my camera and got a couple of pictures of a bald headed eagle waiting in a tree for me to leave so he could resume eating with the ravens. I knew that they were scavengers and opportunists, but I had never seen one before so clearly by road kill. Kind of made me sad to see such a noble bird eating a dead deer in a ditch. I picture them flying in low over a river or lake and scooping a fish with their talons. Maybe I'll have my camera ready for that one.
See Ya Bye
