Bald Eagle with Pink Salmon

Though I knew the pink salmon were out at Indian River mouth, I did not realize they had already moved well up river and so was a little surprised to see this Bald Eagle with a pink salmon a short distance up Indian River Trail. From the looks of things, the eagle had just pulled the fish out of the river and was starting to try and open it up because just a few moments after I first saw it, the fish started flopping and the eagle had to work a bit to get it back under control. We only spent a short time observing before moving on up the trail.
