There have been a number of dead waterfowl on the Mystic River over the latter half of this winter, mostly Canada Geese. None seem to last more than a day, presumably scavenged by birds of prey or coyotes. My family and I watched a Bald Eagle take a Canada Goose from one of the few small and crowded open water spots north of Route 1 about two weeks ago. The next day there was nothing but blood and feathers remaining. The ones apparently succumbing to the conditions disappear without a trace.
