Bold Eagles

Could not resist taking multiple pictures of this beautiful bird. Here you can see three adults and three juveniles. They were close the shore waiting for fishermen to fillet their catch to take of thr rest.
I wished I had more zoom as 10x does not really cut it!
interesting info:
A female bold eagle's wing is almost 8 feet and bound for bound is stronger than airplane wing! And they can strike their prey twice the force of a rifle bullet!
Isn't that amazing? No wonder why it as a symbol for strength and freedom.
This picture was taken in Kenni Peninisula last summer

Interesting posts and blog. I lived in Alaska for two year, although way down southwest in King Salmon. I loved it, but no place to get a shawarma.

Oh, how does you wife like it there? If you took her. I thought about taking my wife to Alaska, but as a Arab woman I figured she'd get bored there, and quick. Nopt much to do there for a Middle Eastern lady used to the big city.

Abu Sinan,
I have to agree, It can be hard. A visit will be fun in the summer, but it will get hard in the long winter. By the way ther is a turkish resturant now that brought some middle eastern flavor (and Shawarma) to the city

Really? I wish I had been there to get one of those. It was two years there with no shawarma, except when I came to DC.
