A juvenile bald eagle attempts to steal a fish from an adult. Taken at the Solomon Gulch Hatchery in Valdez, Alaska. I was out watching the sea lions and seals catching salmon when a bald eagle landed on the shore nearby. He started pecking away at one of the dead fish (there were a lot). About a minute went by before there were 6 eagles (mostly juveniles) fighting over the same fish. There were salmon everywhere, but they were all intent on this one.
