As I snapped photos of Eddie lugging his mysterious catch, I figured he would head up to his nearby nest where his mate, who I've nicknamed Edwina, was roosting. Nope. Instead, he did the opposite. He lowered his altitude and banked to the left -- toward me. I knew this was going to be an urban wildlife encounter like no other. He was approximately 10 yards away when I took this shot of him maneuvering his way over a utility line with the mangled mess still in his talons. I've had some remarkable wildlife encounters, but this was the most amazing one ever above water. Actually, I'm surprised any photos turned out, I was so excited. The species, proximity, urban atmosphere and the sheer unexpectedness of it all combined to make it so awesome. I'm still not 100 percent sure what Eddie was carrying, but the best I can determine is that it was a very large gnawed up fish. Editor's Update: SDP's visiting Assistant to the Junior Editor speculates the mystery item is carrion. Additional Update: The Junior Editor concurs and believes it's "a rack of ribs". More tomorrow on where he took his meal.
