July 28, 2012: Chum Spawning in Salmon Creek in Juneau, Alaska...

July 28, 2012: 

An amazing amount of Chum 
(aka Dog Salmon; Market Name: Northern Keta) 
swimming up Salmon Creek 
to spawn in Juneau, Alaska ~ We did not, however, 
see many Humpies
(aka Pink Salmon; Market Name: Pacific Royal Pink Salmon)...

These are rather large Chum Salmon
swimming up the creek
in just a couple of inches of water...

A Black-Headed Gull
heading down for its dive
seeking Chum eggs...

No shortage of Seagulls
and Black-Headed Gulls
all seeking to eat their fill...

A Black-Headed Gull
in dive-mode
with its head underwater
for Chum eggs...

The same Black-Headed Gull
resurfacing with a
Chum egg...

These Black-Headed Gulls
are rather beautiful
and fascinating to watch while in flight.
