So, the other day, I snapped a few (bad) photos of a bird that I think was an eagle, standing over a dead squirrel. Presumably, it killed it, but at the time I was guessing it wouldn't eat it with a large stranger standing around who might steal his prize.
I come back maybe 10-20 minutes later, and there's still the squirrel carcass, but no sign of the bird. I guess he left without finishing his meal, but I'm not sure why a bird would do that.
A) Is this an Eagle?
B) Is this normal eagle behavior?
I don't really know much about ornithology, so apologies if this is some stupid trivial question I'm asking.
