Looking out at the sad grey sky today, I remembered this old classic tune:
" You must remember this, a fish is still a fish, a case of do or die. The fundamental things apply, as fish fly by..."
Well, I think that's how it goes: My memory is sort of feebing out these days. Anyhoo, I thought about that tune as I watched one of the next door neighbor Bald Eagle adults carrying yet another fish up its Big Babies: one of those animal fundamentals - gotta eat. The other day food was a big Sculpin. Today some sort eel-like fish - a big Penpoint Gunnel, or maybe a Snake Prickleback would fit the menu item I watched go by. Recently, down at the Marine Science Center, I was pointing out to a visitor that a Starry Flounder, with its striking striped fins, can easily be identified as it flies overhead: in the talons of an Osprey, of course; something I've seen in Everett many times - lots of Starry Flounders and Ospreys in Everett.
Oh, by the way, I did confirm there are at least two big babies - saw both at once as they moved up to get their meal
