Hi All,
Well today we went back to the Cypress Hills on the Saskatchewan side, we called the landowner to get permission to see if we could get close to the Bald Eagles we saw on Monday. When we got there they were no longer at that deer carcass so we left and low and behold we found them at another deer carcass a few miles away. Once again there was quite the clean up crew, three Bald Eagles, a Golden Eagle, two Coyotes and some Ravens. This image is of a young Bald Eagle, about two years old is my guess, it has some deer hide as his reward. We didn't get to close to the carcass as the coyotes announced our arrival, with their dash to cover. This young one was off on his own.
