Eagle River Bald Eagles

Bald Eagle

In the state of Alaska, when winter comes, most birds fly south, like geese, cranes, and eagles, but in some areas, the eagles hang around all winter long.  Homer, Alaska has been the most famous location for winter eagle viewing, but with the death of the “Eagle Lady” and ordinance changes, the viewing of Eagles in Homer during the winter months is going to slowly decrease.  However, about 10 miles north of Anchorage in Eagle River, you will find between 50 and 100 eagles wintering in Alaska.  These North American Bald Eagles gather around mid day near the VFW parking lot waiting for their “Eagle Lady” who comes out and feeds them during the winter.
