It looks like a red fox. It might have been looking for scraps. Pestering even a juvenile too much would have been a Bad Move. Here's an adult Bald Eagle stealing a fox's dinner: Bald eagle fights fox in incredible midair tussle
Quote:
A photographer has captured a truly remarkable midair tussle between a bald eagle and a red fox fighting over a rabbit.

The photo, which was taken by Kevin Ebi, was awarded a "Professional Honorable Mention" in the 2019 Audubon Photography Awards.

Key West wants to ban people from feeding roaming chickens
Quote:
January 22, 2021

KEY WEST, Fla (AP) — Feral chickens run free in Key West, just one of those things that keep the Southernmost City charmingly weird.

But what's delightful here and there becomes a nuisance when they’re everywhere. With the population getting out of hand, city commissioners are taking action — not by hunting down the fixings for a massive tailgate party, but by going after their human enablers.

They're making it illegal to feed the free-roaming birds.

An ordinance unanimously approved on a first reading Wednesday said the Florida city's feral chickens can "carry and spread diseases, destroy property, and cause copious amounts of fecal deposits on public property."

Turkish man strikes up 37-year friendship with swan
Quote:
EDIRNE, Turkey (AP) — An unusual friendship between a Turkish man and a swan he rescued has endured for decades.

Retired postman Recep Mirzan found Garip, a female swan, 37 years ago in Turkey's western Edirne province.
<snip>
Garip follows Mirzan whenever she is out of her pen, accompanying him when he is doing his chores around the farm or for his evening walks.
<snip>
Mirzan named the swan "Garip" which translates as "bizarre" but is also used to describe those who are down on their luck.
