Smith's Pond, Woodbury.
An adult bald eagle flew into the back of the Pond around 2:00. Several
ravens were soon cruising around it, and they all have been feeding off and
on a deer carcase for the past hour. Gorgeous view of her, (my guess, based
on size differential w ravens), from our house on the hill opposite.
Wonderful to see the bright yellow of the feet and beak through the spotting
scope. Very impressive seeing the power of that beak pulling pieces from the
deer, working on the top of the leg and pulling the rest of the leg flopping
up with every pull. We called a neighbor or two and had a little Chistmas
Eve eagle party. What a gift!
