An immature bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) watches a mature bald eagle fly by along the bank of the Chilkat River as it snows in the Alaska Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve near Haines, Alaska. The red material on the beak of the mature eagle is from salmon that the eagle had been eating. During late fall, bald eagles congregate along the Chilkat River to feed on salmon. This gathering of bald eagles in the Alaska Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve is believed to be one of the largest gatherings of bald eagles in the world.
