Caption: An Eagle in charge of a road kill deer carcass in a stand off with two Ravens trying to get a bite to eat too. A good number of the Eagles in this area, as well as scavenger birds like Ravens, Crows, and Vultures, survive mainly on road killed deer which number in the thousands every year.

Unfortunately for the road kill victims of all kinds---deer, raccoons, porcupines, and skunks being the most common (very rarely there are beaver or muskrats or smaller aniimals)---this is an often-seen sight up here. Part of the problem for the number of deer kills is the "beautifying" of the highways by the sides being mowed by the County and State---it provides, as you can see in these photos, a banquet of lush growth of green grass long after everything else has dried and turned brown, inviting deer by the millions to graze right along the roadsides. Many panic at night and run directly out in front of vehicles.

About minnesotamom


Hi! My name is Kathy and I live in northern Minnesota, USA, where the winter temps have dipped down to -60º below zero F. The summers used to be mild but in recent years have been up in the 90ºs. I love being able to travel the world from my office chair, through all your great photos! I've learned tons about photography and editing photos thanks to all the great people on here and their willingness to share tips. Thank you to all you Wunderfriends who take time to look and leave notes---I deeply appreciate it. :-)/>free hit countersCreate your own visitor map!
