rib-eye in the sky
 n.— «Baker needs to do a little more research as the crane is in fact a hunted species in nine of ten states in the central flyway from North Dakota to Texas. There they are plentiful and determined to be consumptive game. I had the opportunity to talk to a hunting guide from Texas who referred to them as “rib-eye in the sky.”» —“Battle over dove hunt proposal is heating up” by Tim Kobasic Daily Press (Escanaba, Michigan) Oct. 6, 2006.
