"The Battle"

This was taken at Yaquna Head near Newport, OR. This is a young bald eagle being chased by a sea gull. In talking with the state park ranger that was there, the bald eagle parents would swoop down and occasionally grab one of the Commorants on the rocks. The young eagle here was trying to do the same thing, but did not succeed. Then this gull drove him away. It was fun to watch, though.
