Tastes like?

A man is caught sitting at a make-shift campfire 
by a forest ranger, and to the ranger's horror, 
the man is eating a baldeagle. The man is 
consequently put in jail for the crime. On
the day of his trail, the conversation went 
something likethis:
JUDGE: "Do you know that eating a bald eagle
is a federal offense?"
MAN: "Yes I do. But if you let me argue my 
case, I'll explain what happened."
JUDGE: "Proceed."
MAN: "I got lost in the woods. I hadn't had 
anything to eat for two weeks. I was so hungry. 
Next thing I see is a Bald Eagle
swooping down at the lake for some fish. 
I knew that if I followed the Eagle I could 
maybe steal the fish. I caught up
with the eagle who lighted upon a tree stump 
to eat the fish.
I threw a stone toward the eagle hoping he 
would drop the fish
and fly away. Unfortunately, in my weakened 
condition, my aim
was off, and the rock hit the eagle squarely 
on his poor little
head, and killed it. I thought long and hard 
about what had
happened, but figured that since I killed it 
I might as well
eat it since it would be more disgraceful to 
let it rot on the
JUDGE: "The court will take a recess while I 
consider your
(15 minutes goes by and the judge returns.)
JUDGE: "Due to the extreme circumstance you 
were under and
because you didn't intend to kill the eagle, 
the court will
dismiss the charges."
The Judge then leans over the bench and 
whispers: "If you don't
mind my asking, what does a bald eagle 
taste like?"
MAN: "Well your honor, it is hard to explain. 
The best I can
describe it is somewhere between a California 
Condor and a Spotted Owl."
