As the scientific name for the bald eagle – Haliaeetus leucocephalus (white-headed fish eagle) indicates, their principal diet is composed of fish – as much as 90%. But today at Norfolk Botanical Garden at 2:40pm the male adult brought the female part of the other 10% of their diet – a muskrat (an aquatic rodent). He had already eaten part of it. It took her until 3:14 to take the last gulp, then fly to the front branch to clean her mandibles by wiping them on the branch. Click on photos to enlarge.
