FOOD FIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!

FOOD FIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!, a photo by ricmcarthur on Flickr.

When we were in New Zealand in 2009 we went on a pelagic trip, a fancy name for taking a boat out into the ocean to see sea birds.

They put a bait ball bull of fish bits over the stern of the boat and albatross and other birds came in.
Occasionally they were very aggressive.
The bird on the right has a 10 foot wing span.

A very cool sight to see, are the black birds Gannets?
