Fish and birds aren’t the only ones who feed on herring balls. Humpbacks often do what is called a lunge feed where they come up from underneath the herring ball with their mouth open and try to consume as many fish as possible. Often when we are out whale watching you will see gulls feeding on a herring ball. When the birds lift off the water it usually means one of two things. Either the fish have dispersed or there is a whale coming up for a snack.
A good photograph showing the claws on this sub-adult grizzly bear. Brown bear or grizzly bear claws are long and curved, ranging in color from yellow to brown. These claws are used to dig up roots and bulbs of plants, to excavate den sites as well as wrap around and hold salmon.
