When Herring show up in your backyard…

29 04 2010

The sea lions follow:

As do the eagles,

All over the trees behind the house:

And in the neighborhood:

The eagles dove out over the water as they zoomed in on the fish:

A near miss:

Some hard banking

Did it get the fish?

It sure did, not one, but two! One in each set of talons:

And this one, not to be out done, one in a set of talons, one in the beak:

And ofcourse my son is out trying his luck as well.
He did catch 2 herrings with his cast net.

Alaska Raptor Center

3 04 2010

The Alaska Raptor Center here in Sitka is dedicated to rehabilitating sick or injured birds of prey with the goal of releasing them back to the wild. Today they released 4 eagles.

The video is a little shaky, sorry. But I had a camera in the other hand, and three little ones I was keeping an eye on since Theresa was busy…releasing the eagle. With an ear to ear grin!
