The eagle has landed
One of the by-products of all that bubble-net feeding by humpback whales is lots of stunned and dazed herring. Gulls of every shape and size usually captitalize on this fact, but this afternoon it is a juvenile and adult Bald Eagle that take advantage of the easy prey. The juvenile was only a hit-and-miss scavenger, but move over! Not only did the adult show junior how to grab the sluggish fish off the waters' surface, it even transferred the fish from talons to beak in mid-air. Extra style points were given for that one!
