Bald Eagles and snow – Alaska 2020

Bald Eagles and snow. China Poot Bay is an extraordinary place to watch Bald Eagles. We visited there several times during our stay in Homer. We were on a small sand spit that was covered in snow with snow-covered mountains as an amazing backdrop. The eages were very active!

Female birds weigh on average 5.3kg whilst males weigh in at 4.2kg, on average. Large female bald eagles can weigh 7kg and have a wing span of 2.44m. They are big birds. Bald Eagles subsist mainly on fish which they catch by swooping down and snatching from the water with their massive talons.
