Mr. North’s Breakfish Trout Take-Out!

By Sherri Elliott

We’ve seen Mr. North several times lately hanging out by the stream and our camera operators strained the zoom to get his morning fishing expedition. He scouted from the far creekbank, hop-walked a bit to check stream channels, plotted a course of take-off and banked back to swoop down for a talon grab, and brought a beauty home to the nest. His mate, DNF, was tracking him and vocalized while en route right behind him to claim the gift. Way to go, Mr. North … a whole fish … not even taste-tested first!
