Salmon Season for Admiralty Bay Eagles

I observed this bald eagle fishing in Admiralty Bay on June 24, 2020 from 11:20 am through 11:30-ish. That is how long it took for it to circle above the bay to identify the salmon in the water, plunge rather unceremoniously into the salt water, swim about 60 meters from the bay to the shoreline, preen its feathers, adjust her grip on the salmon, and take off to the nest by Admirals Lake. This is the third time I’ve observed eagles fishing in Admiralty Bay this season. I took over 100 photos of this observation event, but here are the highlights.
