A pair of Bald Eagles in a tree, one of which has a large fish in its talons. My son and I spotted the one with the fish flying overhead and watched it land in the distance. Naturally we tracked it down to get some photos and found out there were two of them but no fish sharing was happening.

The two Pigeon Guillemots from yesterdays' posting were very vocal with one another. Obviously a "married" couple.

These two Pigeon Guillemots stayed close together as they swam and fished. A lot of conversations went on between them. Sure wish I could have translated.
