disturbance - Eagle (0810 - 0910) () Eagles present entire hour and kept the Guillemots far out from the beach. Toward the very end of the hour we became aware of one bird coming close in with tiny fish in beak and determined to get it delivered to chick! A very lengthy, sometimes escorted and convoluted delivery, but accomplished.

disturbance - Eagle (0810 - ??) (flee bluff or beach) Eagle sits in tree directly above Burrow #1 and comes and goes from time to time. It is difficult to see just when it is there and when not. For the most part, the PG's remain quite a distance out unless they have a fish and then they will come in closer regardless of the eagle's presence.

disturbance - Eagle (? - ?) () Eagle comes and goes without us knowing exactly when and in which tree. We are never quite sure when they arrive and when they leave, but the Guillemots just keep a healthy distance out from the beach. We have not experienced vocal alarm, mass flying off the water, diving under water. OFF THE RECORD; On 6/26 after survey hour was up, guillemot delivered gunnel to Burrow #1 and immediately flew back out to sea with the fish, remaining there for 15 minutes before successfully delivering the gunnel to the burrow. An eagle was present in that tree.
