You may be wondering what I had for lunch today as I traveled to Dover Delaware to meet with a potential client. The answer is - yet another turkey and cheese hoagie from Wawa (and a large Diet Coke of course). What do Bald Eagles have for lunch? Coots. As seen in this photo from Bombay Hook today where I ate my hoagie:
Admittedly, this is not my finest photo ever. I had to quickly put the hoagie down, park the car, pick up the camera and get a few shots taken before the Eagle flew off behind the trees to eat. Most of the shots are really blurry but you can see that this is a Coot based on the head and the giant feet hanging down.
Here is a shot of the whole scene. The geese didn't flinch when the Eagle started to swoop down. I guess they knew that the Eagle had something else in its sights.
