Hello Tweeters,

Need some help...along with Deborah Allen I photographed this almost
adult Bald Eagle at Semiahmoo (near Blaine) on 18 March.


What is the species of fish this eagle is eating? We were visiting
from NYC for the Wings Over Water Birding Festival where we gave two
keynote talks - but we love your birds...and need to know more about
fish that eagles are likely to feed upon. This fish is a bottom
feeder (note dark dorsal area and light ventral; both eyes on dorsal surface).

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Deborah and Bob
