Whole lotta eagles

I was looking through the pics on my camera and I thought you lower 48 guys might find these ones interesting. In those trees behind the trailers there are like 15 bald eagles (and a few crows), I took these around Thanksgiving in Valdez. I doubt the people living in that trailer park have a squirrel problem.

Just don't get caught with one of those eagle feathers in your possession. I bought a fake one once and had no less than three federal officers demand to examine it. Big fines and even prison is available to those who appear to have "molested" our national bird.

One question though...

Is that Santa Claus bent over and vomiting next to your shed?
I thought he lived in the North Pole....

Getting eagle feathers or other parts is a pain/nearly impossible. You need to have Native American heritage, then submit the request to the government and be subjected to a long line. Obviously people with greater Native percentage get bumped up to the top, so one could be waiting for life and never see one.

I wonder if they rent those things out, or maybe I should just look for a smaller owl or something for the flying squirrels...

Nifty pictures- and I was fascinated by the ravens around Fairbanks! (Yeah, I know damn tourist....)

Haha, wouldn't know since thats not my house or neighborhood, maybe thats Santa's summer home. Its actually fairly common to see groups of eagles like that around Valdez, they're not especially revered up here except by tourists since they're such a common sight (and people get pissed when their cats and little dogs disappear).

Nice pics. Eagles are cool!

We have eagles down here, but not that much of a concentration. I can attest to the fact when you have big birds in a tree, you don`t want to park under those trees. Much poopage.
