August 12, 2015: Eagle and Prey

Tom Zimmerman watched and photographed this bald eagle lift what may be a muskrat ( or mink) from Ada Hayden lake back on May 21. Our family has had fun trying to identify the prey. (Below are photos leading up to the top photo). Tom said the prey was heavy enough to thwart the eagle's flight and kept the bird low over the surface of the water until it could reach the shore and haul the prey up into a tree.
