Bald Eagle and Canada Geese

Haliaeetus leucocephalus and Branta canadensis

Habitat:

Backwaters of the Mississippi River near Lock and Dam #13

Notes:

These two Canada geese were slowly passing the mature bald eagle perched on a log. I have seen immature eagles swoop at geese, but have never seen a mature go after them, although I'm sure it happens all the time. This would be a meal fit for a king!
