Great action photos, Booni!   :thumbup:

Click on Booni's latest pictures of Mom Hornby, especially 206-162, and look at Mom's belly. The feathers look like they are knit together a little differently; I believe that this is because of her brooding patch. Dad's is also discernible in the photo numbered 206-572, which Booni posted on March 23.

Dad's belly looks like a knitting that's missing a few stitches; Mom's looks more geometrical. The surrounding feathers fluff out and cover the brooding patches when Mom and Dad are out and about.

The Sea Lions this day were AMAZING!
There were huge numbers of them.
This group, in the video, swim from left to right then back left again, as the young Eagle makes an attempt to catch a Herring then lands on Dinner Rock.
There were so many, & their swimming was so furious, that they made waves of whooshing sounds that i could hear the whole time i was photographing.

There is lots going on in this foto.
A young Eagle is attempting to catch a Herring.
There are Sea Lions rafting in the upper right hand corner.
If you click the foto & click the big one that opens up, you can see that one of the Gulls in the lower left hand corner has a Herring in their beak!

Booni - wonderful video of the sea lion on the rock  (was that earlier?  I saw it on your YT channel - s/he reminded of someone I know)  and FABULOUS pictures of the herring spawn and esp of the youngster-could-it-be-Hope.
