Squaw Creek-Eagle with lunch

Finally, I was able to go to Squaw Creek wildlife refuge in Mound City, MO this past Friday. WoW! what a treat. We saw 18 eagles and they are expecting more to be coming through. I'll definitely be going back in the next week or so.

This juvenile was munching on it's lunch and didn't like all of us camera people watching while it ate it's lunch, so off it went. I'm pretty sure goose was on the menu.
They normally carry their prey in their talons. I had a shot of it grabbing the food from it's mouth with it's talons, but unfortunatley, that's the one that didn't turn out.
