After Party at Sheep Creek

L1220440The St. Patrick’s Day partying ended when the front street bars closed at 2 p.m. Another party should be going this morning here on the Sheep Creek Delta. In Southeast Alaska, when the tide is out, the table is set. At first we only see two crows near the creek, loitering about like the trouble makers they are. In a few minutes we find the party. Two eagles, crows and gulls all feed on something tasty near the Gasteneau Channel beach. Just off shore, a tight raft of Barrow’s Golden Eye ducks feed in shallow water. Further out, a seal waits for them to move onto his hunting grounds. L1220469
