September 20th, 2013 – Avian Friday: Fish Monger
This Great Blue Heron scopes out a spot to nab unsuspecting fish in the shallows along the Hood Canal shoreline. He’ll soon discover however that catching the fish will just be half the battle. He’ll have to vie with the likes of a few Bald Eagles who’ll soon be out to steal his quarry.
