Salmon bites bald eagle tailAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
The head from a salmon carcass appears to be biting the tail of a bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) as if flies from the banks of the Chilkat River in the Alaska Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve. 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.
