Where in the World? Eagle River, Alaska, USA

Last winter Brendan, my Sister-In-Law and I went to Alaska to visit long-time friends. Having come from Southern California (or Australia in my SIL’s case) the cold was a shock, but everything was just so beautiful blanketed in perfect snow.

A highlight of our week was visiting Eagle River, named for the bald eagles which are abundant in the area.

These are truly magnificent birds and it was a real honour to see them in the wild.

They are also quite massive, something these photos can’t really depict.

Once a week in winter, one of the local ladies throws out some salmon, and a feeding frenzy ensues. There were literally hundreds of bald eagles waiting in the trees for the weekly ritual.

  1. They are some great photos Mia. I think that I have seen this feeding ritual on tele a while ago. Quite amazing birds. Good to see them looking so healthy.
