May 13th, 2016 – Avian Friday: Filet o’ Fishwich

Made my first outing of the Bald Eagle season this weekend but the morning tide was not quite right. It was an early morning low, but a minus tide that would have exposed enough shoreline for the Eagles to actively feed on the fish. There Eagle that we did see for the most part stayed put up in the tall pine trees away from the beach. There were a few Great Blue Herons about they were not shy about submerging their heads in the water to pick up a meal. This particular youngster looked like he had his angling technique down pat. It was not a good morning to be a swimming around in his vicinity. Hopefully next weeks tides will kick the Eagle action in high gear.
