5R to the rescue!

Yesterday afternoon we reported that 8F dropped the majority of a very large trout under one of the T perches in Manton Bay. Usually the birds are unable to retrieve dropped fish, but this time 5R came to the rescue. About three hours after 8F had dropped the fish, 5R dived into the water below the T perch and came up with it. A job well-done!

5R plunges into the water

…disappears into the water

…and comes up with the fish

and nearly bumps into a Gadwall on the way back to the nest
