Obviously from my tale I never saw them in action and I'm presuming from you being on the bay you actually saw them hunt. Must be amazing, like you say wonderful creature and I'm not particularly a bird watcher but if you've no response to nature I'm not sure you've much response at all. It is part of our sentience.
Thanks for the kind words.

I did.
Watched them catch more fish than us too!
Once, on a boat tour on the Missouri river..We traveled into a canyon, then back out to the lake where the tour was based. At the mouth of the Canyon..as if on cue, a Bald Eagle swooped down, next to the boat and scooped up a trout. Hauled it back up the cliff, and started eating.
It looked completely staged! Yet it wasn't...Even the tour guide said something like "no, this bird is NOT an employee here"...

Sorry to go a little off topic.

oh no don't apologise...it is on topic because it relates to nature.

I think we get so caught up with materialism we miss or don't see nature...

A while back I just sat at the beach and took it all in... and I felt so much bliss. Watched the sunset too, nature is just so perfect...

I'm not a regular bird watcher either....But they are challenging and great photo subjects!

This is from my back porch...A Rufous Hummingbird.

I live in an urban setting. A former wool mill town and many of the ornate Victorian buildings survive all of which had ledges. Until they put fine mesh over the buildings to prevent it starlings found these ledges and ornamentation perfect roost spots and gathered in their thousands. At evening they would flock before settling for the night giving an absolutely wonderful display of flight and aerobotics with thousand upon thousand of them.
As you were stood in a city centre with buildings restricting one's view the starlings overhead filled the sky one could see with ballet and noise, and they were very noisy one could almost feel as though you were part of the dizzying mass.
