Not that yellow talking bird from the children's show, although that would have been cool if he were spotted walking down Phillips Ave.

I've always lived in a city so I don't get to see all the wonderful creatures that inhabit God's Country as often as I would like.

Imagine my surprise when I was driving on 33rd Street in Sioux Falls the other day and I spotted this huge bird eating its dinner on someone's front lawn.

I parked on a side street to watch and stayed about 50 feet away as to not scare it off.  The digital zoom on my smartphone wasn't up to the task of getting a clear picture.

My wife thought it could be an eagle, possibly a rare Golden Eagle, or an immature Bald Eagle.  JD Collins thought it was a hawk.

Any suggestions on what it is?  Leave them on the KIKN Country Facebook page.
