A Turkey Vulture… Waiting!

A Bald Eagle Swimming! This eagle had taken down a lone Canada goose and not being able to “lift off” with its prize had to swim to shore using its wings. Their usual prey is fish but they are hard to find and there are many, too many, Canada geese around. I am surprised that the geese are not a more frequent target.
