Interesting. YOu’d think a gull would be wiser. Judy

I think the gulls are like some humans … if I can get it in my mouth I must be able to keep it and eat it …
Beaks are great for eating and eagles and ospreys use sharp talons for toting.
Bill Buck email@example.com Look up wisely and believe.
I frequently see bald eagles carrying fish in their beaks … and sometimes eating it mid-flight. Never have been able to get decent photographs of the sequence. Ospreys rarely carry things in their beaks, but I have seen an occasional small fish hauled that way.
