Cruising past the river today I paused to watch this Bald Eagle leisurely enjoy his lunch.

Once the eagle took off, the gulls moved in so quickly it was as if they’d been sitting on the sidelines waiting for him to leave.

The gulls made fishing look easy, plucking unsuspecting alewives from the river as they passed in the shallows.
