I have a question..

White-tailed Sea Eagle

Rausu, Shiretoko, Hokkaido, Japan

February 25, 2006

What do you think these eagles are doing?

This is from my Shiretoko trip seven years ago. They are on the ice-floe in the sea. I noticed eagles sometimes sticking their beaks into the ice.

I'm not sure if the ice is fresh water or just frozen sea-water..

I'm grateful for your ideas.
