To tame a Hesperornis, you must kill a fish, and drag the fish's corpse to the Hesperornis to feed it. The fish's size plays a major factor in how many fish will be required (a 1.0x fish appears to fill up the taming bar twice as much as a 0.5x fish). Level of fish does not appear to impact taming. The Sabertooth Salmon is by far the most effective fish, equivalent of about 4 Coels of the same size, while the Piranha is equivalent to about 2.4 Coels.
