Bald eagle

Opossum, its what's for dinner.

On the way back from a birding trip we spotted a bald eagle coming into a field. It land about 30 feet, 10 metres, away from the road and proceeded to dine.
Haliaeetus leucocephalus
The largest Bald Eagle nest on record, in St. Petersburg, Florida, was 2.9 meters in diameter and 6.1 meters tall. Another famous nest—in Vermilion, Ohio—was shaped like a wine glass and weighed almost two metric tons. It was used for 34 years until the tree blew down.
