Re: eagles

Hey Daryl

Watching a bald eagle catch salmon or trout is a great experience. But they get many of their fish from stealing them from Osprey in mid-air. When Linda (my wife) and I were in Kodiak I caught a nice 18" Dolly Vardon and we happened to look up and see an eagle staring down at us. Usually I catch and release but this time we offered the hapless fish to the eagle who after we backed off quite a ways swooped down and took it off the rock we perched it on. They truly are majestic creatures.

Lucky you! I saw them catching Salmon in Alaska. Remarkable birds. Some of
the fish were huge.


We have dozens of bald eagles around where I live...it is so awesome to
go over to the little boat access area just outside our town and watch
the eagles as they fly back and forth over the river, following the
stream bed, while they hunt...and if you are very lucky by being
patient, you get rewarded by getting to watch them swoop down to the
river and catch up a big ol' fish in their talons and fly away with it.
Every time I drive in or out of town you can see them...some sitting in
the trees, some hunting, others just cruising on the air currents.
Amazingly beautiful creatures. And to think some yo-yo in government
wants to take them off the protected species list...
