Bald Eagle

In late November 2006, a solitary Canada Goose, unable to fly, spent its last days near the model airplane field at Sherwood Island. On more than one occasion, other geese would fly over and call to him, but he never responded. Then, on Thanksgiving day, an adult Bald Eagle arrived, found the goose, and had him for dinner.

The day after Thanksgiving, the eagle was gone. Turkey Vultures came in the clean up the leavings.
