Eagle Meal

We took a family walk to the park and on the way we saw an eagle eating something on one of the pilings. It appeared to be a bird, though by the time I was able to get a picture, the wing that had been hanging down was no longer. Eventually, there was a bit of a tiff between a couple of eagles over the carcass, with one chasing the other. The carcass was dropped in the water and the chasing eagle swooped down to grab it out of the water. It landed on one of the pilings and started eating on it.

Location: Lincoln Street Beach, Sitka, Alaska
