This week, the guests were treated to the Bald Eagle feeding frenzy! This spectacular event happens for only a few weeks every year.
In this particular area, the current is so strong that it creates giant upwellings. The Hake fish get caught in the upwelling and are shot to the surface so quickly that their swim bladder balloons out. This prevents the fish from being able to swim back down, and creates the perfect smorgasbord for the 200-300 eagles sitting in the trees.
It’s a sight unlike no other, to watch these beautiful majestic creatures soar through the sky and swoop down to catch the fish. This phenomenon lasts only a couple of hours, after which the eagles return to the trees to digest their meal. Any leftover fish fortunate enough to survive, eventually make their way back down to the bottom and get to live another day!
Join us on one of our 6 hour tours and see for yourself!
