Eagle Gets Double-crested Cormorant
Since the male had left the catch, all of the others were back and ready to take it. The couple spent some time letting them know that was not for the taking. This went on for about ten minutes and ended with all the other eagles in the area leaving.
I had quite the morning with an excellent opportunity to capture this playing out to the end. I will say I have been fortunate a lot of times with running into situations like this. Hopefully this weekend I will find a Double-crested Cormorant that something else does not want so I can complete my post about the giant rockfish and the Double-crested Cormorant. The Cormorant must have been saying to itself I think I can eat this giant rockfish. You will not believe how big this fish is, and it went down whole.
