Description

This bald eagle was attacking this Canada Goose. I don't know if the eagle would have won. My driving up and stopping to take pictures seemed to have scared the eagle away. The mate of the goose that was attacked was honking at the eagle to try to stop the attack. I never knew an eagle would attack something so big!

The second blurry picture is of the eagle on the goose in the water.
