Seward snapshot: Not ALL of the eagles are starving

Yesterday, I talked at length about the sad fact that Seward’s eagles are sick, so I thought I’d follow up with evidence that not all of them are starving.  Dale took a photo of an adult eagle last weekend that was posing majestically next to the bay, but he didn’t notice until he processed the photo that this bird had just finished a meal.

Take a close look at his talons and you’ll see the evidence:

Based on the feathers and blood-stained snow, it looks like this beauty had bird for dinner.  At least one of Seward’s eagles is finding a way to survive the winter!
