Picture Day - Eagles (and some deer)

And, finally, some good pictures of Eagles!

But first some small, fuzzy deer that were grazing next to the parking lot of the medical center just inside the entrance to the base.

So cute, I wish I could pet it!

Look at that fuzzy face, this guy was not shy.

The second eagle we saw.

The first eagle we saw.

It's a bit hard to see the third eagle but there are 3 telephone poles and each has an eagle on it! This on the road that heads out to Josh's work.

Another eagle.

And another.

Through the branches.

3 in a tree. The two lower ones are juveniles, they don't have their 'bald' heads yet.

4 eagles in this picture.

One of my favorite pictures.

A little closer.

More than 10 eagle on that ridge!

5 eagles. Check out the guy with his wings open, wish I could have gotten closer to get a better picture of him!

I think this guy looks like he's wearing a royal robe. (-:

More than 7 eagles in this picture. This is in a field next to Josh's work, we had to get permission to walk in there and get pictures.

You can't really see them but there are a couple eagles winging their way down the river in this picture, there are also eagles in the tree on the left.

Only 5 eagles left by the time I got close to these two trees, there were more then 10 but they didn't like us walking up the them.

I think these two are discussing whether or not they should follow their friends.

Two trees full of eagle.

And lastly, this one wasn't quite quick enough in his escape! (-:
I love living in Alaska!
(As I was writing this post an eagle landed in the field behind our house, it is now in a tree in the field - I can see him just by turning my head! It is a bit dark and rainy to get a good picture. Earlier this week a juvenile eagle was on our roof, I did get a picture of him I may post later. Just so cool!)


  1. That is awesome! Thanks for sharing! My favorite is "Through the Branches." Enjoy your Alaskan adventure!

  2. Oh, and those deer are well-prepared for the weather, aren't they?? I've never seen such fuzzy deer!

  3. Great pics again Bonnie. It looks great up there. Can't wait until we come up this summer.
