The last time we were at the Manitowoc zoo we were lucky enough to be there at feeding time for the birds of prey. You might be grossed out by these so don't say you weren't warned. While I was a little grossed out, I also found it very interesting.
The Bald Eagle gobbled all his mice up very quickly! See, one in each claw and two in the throat.
See he has another in his mouth even though you can still see the tail of the previous one.
And with a full tummy he is done with us.
Go away I say! I thought owls were the only ones able to turn their heads all the way around.
The zoo keeper laid the mice on this log for the hawk.
He was a little more hesitant to eat.
So while we waited for him to decide to eat we walked around and saw the owl (those pictures will be up tomorrow).
When we came back around he had a mouse in his talons.
Bye bye mousey.
I guess he decided to ignore us and have his dinner. Glad I'm not a mouse!
