Scavengers (9 by 11" graphite and charcoal on paper)
Whenever I would go back home to visit for a weekend during the school year I always look forward to what kind of wildlife I will see on the 5-6 hour trip. One weekend when I was returning back to Lethbridge I saw this Bald eagle feeding on a carcass of some sort just off the highway. My guess was that it was feeding on a deer which had been hit by a vehicle. I knew I wanted to turn what I seen into a drawing since I hardly ever come across eagles feeding in the wild. Most of the times I see them they're flying or sitting on tree limbs. I also wanted to add in one of the two Magpies into the drawing which were trying to get their fair share of food as well.
