He'll never eat all that for sure. Shame that it's in capture though, when you see these birds flying wild on a mountainside they really come to life. But like zoos it's the only way most of us see these fine birds.
Good position of the bird covering it's "kill".

The eagle might be saying, 'you can take a shot, just don't try taking my dinner'. I certainly wouldn't want to tangle with him Wink
