Big Bald Birdies!

Sure there are huskies in Alaska but there are a lot of bald eagles too.  Mommy and Daddy said they could see them flying through the trees from their stateroom balcony but they saw them up close at Icy Strait Point such as this guy who met the cruise ship's tender boats as they came to the pier...
He was keeping an eye on everything from that vantage point.  Can you see him?
They went on a hike through the forest and saw this eagle up high in the tree...
Also this adult and juvenile eagle.  The youngin' blended in real well...
This juvenile was at the harbor in the nearby town of Hoonah, AK.  He may not have his white feathers in yet but he sure has that menacing stare down pat...
Mommy and Daddy walked back to Icy Strait Point from Hoonah and all along the 1.5 mile route the eagles were soaring above them...
They are certainly majestic aren't they?
Of course, Mommy not only spotted the eagles in the area but she also saw this guy...
And this one too...
*sigh* She's hopeless.

Hope you enjoyed seeing the beautiful big bald birdies from Alaska!

Eagles are such majestic creatures! The look on that second doggy's picture as if to say, "whatcha want, huh?" made us laugh!

Those eagles are beautiful! I admire this bird, however, have not come across one this close. The expression of the doggy in the last picture made me smile :)

We see lots of those bald birdies here too. You had best stay away from them though girls. They think cat is a delicacy.

Such a cool trip! We sure can understand why eagles are the national bird. They are awesome and how lucky you were to see so many (and just in time for the 4th, too).

Then I saw the cruise ship and cringed. It reminded me how sick I was when we returned from our Hawaii cruise. It took forever to get well. Okay, off the soapbox.

Hubby wants to go to Alaska. What a lovely thing to do. He's a real outdoors kind of guy.

Great shots.

Have a fabulous day. Scritches to the babies. ♥♥♥
