Alaskan Eagles II

Copyright Barbara Samuelson 1997

Eagle in flight over Sitka, Alaska.

ea·gle (ź¹gel) noun - Any of various large diurnal birds of prey of the family Accipitridae, including members of the genera Aquila and Haliaeetus, characterized by a powerful hooked bill, keen vision, long broad wings, and strong, soaring flight.

The eagle became the National emblem in 1782 when the great seal of the United States was adopted. The eagle was chosen because of its long life, great strength and majestic looks, and also because it was then believed to exist only on this continent. Bald Eagle Facts


Back in Alaska again in June and July of this year (1997). These shots of mature and juvenile bald eagles are from Sitka, Alaska. They are feeding on salmon and halibut in the rocks, thrown there by a commercial fisherman. At one point there were 15 eagles surrounding a discarded hailbut head and backbone.
