This time the herring are eating something other than euphausiids. There is a variety of small stuff, but I think they are targeting the white wiggly thin things with the bigger heads that look like sperm cells. Sometimes a school of herring would rush forward, all with their mouths open, and a few skimming right off of the surface. Then they would turn back again.
These eagles include a majority of adolescent eagles which are marked by their motley colours , in contrast to the regular adult resident pairs which have the white heads and dark bodies of mature eagles.
There are twenty or so eagles generally hanging around the Cove. The young ones camouflage well in the trees. I wonder where they were since the last time they congregated here in large numbers , back in early April. And are these different birds ? They certainly mark the herring .
This last picture doesn't look like much, but that's what an angler's eye notices.
