On one of my first ventures out on my own to eastern WA in 1981, I found a Bald Eagle eating a carp in the Frenchman’s Hills Wasteway area south of George. (I had spotted a Long-eared Owl with young nesting in an old magpie nest, and the eagle was munching on the carp in a nearby stream.)

Carp are spawning in the shallows around Lake Washington & would be easy pickings for eagles. Has anyone observed eagles using carp?
