Although they are the second largest bird in Northern America with a wingspan of up to 114 inches they only weigh up to 20 lb. The only bird... More

Not only that you saw a lot of Dolphins but I guess it was also amazing to watch an American Bald Eagle and an Osprey fighting for a fish. Hopefully you got some nice shots of this rare sighting....
