Re: eagles

I believe that is why Benjamin Franklin preferred the Turkey to the Bald Eagle as our national symbol. I believe he referred to the latter as being of "disreputable character".

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.
