In the early dawn hours this morning something killed an Antelope less than 150 yards from our house. When the sun was up and the light was good we saw three Bald Eagles and two Golden Eagles on the carcass, tearing pieces of flesh from it and devouring them. Approximately two dozen Ravens were clustered around the area, bravely trying to dash in and get a bite now and then and hoping there would be something left for them when the eagles had gotten their fill. By the end of the day there was nothing left of the Antelope but bones and a few pieces of hide.

I don’t know what had killed the Antelope but the most likely guess would be an Eagle.

I took this picture a few years ago of a young Eagle perched on our yard fence after it had killed and eaten a Cottontail rabbit almost in our yard.
