Avian Drama


When visiting T’anuu while travelling with the Passing Cloud we witnessed the harassment of an eagle by oyster catchers.

The Haida watchman told us that a few days before the eagle had killed and eaten an oyster catcher on this same beach and ever since the others would not leave the eagle alone, repeatedly dive bombing with a lot of noise.

T’anuu Llnagaay (or Tanu under English spelling) is a village on Tanu Island in Gwaii Haanas.

It has many Haida house frames and features preserved from the 1800s and is an important tourist destination in the area.

It was a bonus to be shown a bit of nature’s drama at the same time.

    • Thank you StillWalks – this was a quick edit and quite a heavy crop. I think the picture deserves a bit more effort. There sure was a lot of racket associated with this drama.
