Bald Eagle
This eagle is waiting for the bears to finish with the salmon.

We visited Anan Bay on 7 August 2007, it is a great spot although fairly difficult to get to. We saw brown bears early in the morning and then American Black Bear, all catching salmon, which are coming up the creek to spawn.

Here is a little more info on Anan Bay

Description

This female? osprey was hovering over the man-made lake at Berkeley Aquatic Park and diving half-way down to the lake then rising back up. Repeated this pattern several times, but didn't catch any fish.

Description from Wikipedia

The Accipitriformes is an order that has been proposed to include most of the diurnal birds of prey: hawks, eagles, vultures, and many others, about 225 species in all. For a long time, the majority view has been to include them with the falcons in the Falconiformes, but some authorities have recognized a separate Accipitriformes. A recent DNA study has indicated that falcons are not closely related to the Accipitriformes, being instead related to parrots and...
