Didn't get to eat it though
A very pleasant pheasant!Very nice!
I'd love to see a Bald Eagle in real life!
Aghhh. I knew I should have gotten a picture, but this was a bunch of years ago before every phone had a camera on them...
I lived on a house on the edge of a lake that backed up to a very high cliff, with scattered wheat fields chock with rodents nearby. Perfect for Bald Eagles. They liked to hunt the ducks- they'd get the females while they sat on their eggs. I watched a bald eagle, no more than 20 feet away and 8 feet up in a tree EAT a duck. He was holding it in one talon, resting on the other on the branch, and flat chawwing on that duck.
As a Beaver fan, it made me smile, too.
