Tweets - I just (Sunday 4 pm) watched an amazing interaction between a juvenile Bald Eagle (BAEA) and the continuing BRPE from the fishing pier at Golden Gardens in Seattle. Very dramatic chase but the BRPE survived despite appearing to be hit midair by the BAEA. The pelican slammed down onto the surface and ducked as the eagle made a couple of passes. It then took flight and managed to out-maneuver the BAEA which then glided away. BRPE still floating upright. Sheesh.
