We traveled through the city of Valdez , Alaska and came across one of the most amazing sights I have ever seen in nature. While entering the city, after crossing through Thompson’s Pass, we came across hundreds of bald eagles nesting in trees and fishing in the streams. It was very easy to see why these are America’s national bird. They are so majestic. There were so many of them, we just had to stop and take it all in.
We stopped our car and found this guy having a very hearty breakfast. This was incredible to catch on video!
There were bald eagles in almost every tree. They didn’t even seem to notice that we were driving through and taking photos of them.
We even managed to see some bald eagle adolescents. The eagles are brown until they reach maturity. Only adult eagles have the distinctive white heads and tails.
We came across this amazing mom eagle watching two of her babies eating lunch. They were sitting on opposite sides of the same pond, yet she managed two keep an eye on both of them. She seemed very protective.
These birds were so incredible. Valdez seems to be a haven for these great birds.
I am sure the plentiful supply of salmon makes this the perfect residence for these birds. There is even a salmon hatchery in Valdez.
I would love the opportunity to go back to Valdez and see these birds again and take more photos. Watching them over the course of a couple of days solidifies my vision of them as the ultimate American symbol.
