The eagles are thick as mosquitoes in a rainforest. But out here on the water, there are no bugs or flies. Just hundreds of these magnificient creatures. They come for ‘The Flood’ when the incoming tides drives trillions of gallons of water into the sound and inlets, creating 15′ deep whirlpools and the hake that get in the way are sucked down 500 feet and spat back up to the surface. On the way up, they essentially get the bends (their guts explode) and die, leaving a cornucopia of food for the eagles who comes from their next miles and miles away to gorge themselves and feed their young this time of year.
