Otter vs Eagle

And the eagle won.  Regis was videoing a river otter that was eating something when an eagle showed up to steal the prize. 

I went out before sunrise and there was too much cloud cover to see the Cascade mountains or Mt. Rainier.  It was quiet and beautiful and I saw an otter and a seal in the water.  The otter had a nice size fish.  They were too far away and the light conditions where not good to get a video but I found this snail nearby and videoed it instead.   

The place is full of white-crowned sparrows and Regis found this one with a beak full of food.

White-crowned sparrow (Zonotrichia leucophrys) with a lot of food in its beak in Fay Bainbridge State Park.

  1. I hope the eagle just took the food and not the otter. Sounds like you are having a wonderful time in spite of some glitches. XO


  2. Not the otter, just the food. The otter taking a dust bath is the same one that lost its hard earned meal to the eagle.
