Eagles at Eagle River - February 16

After our dog handling training session in Anchorage, we stopped to eat at Eagle River. Eagle River is about 13 miles north of Anchorage. It was a rainy, cold afternoon. As we left the parking lot we spotted a bunch of eagles in the trees behind the buildings. So we stopped and watched them for a while. They were a pretty bedraggled looking group, since it was so rainy. They just huddled in the trees. But every once in a while, one would fly from one tree to the next. Then we got a reminder of what a majestic bird they can be. We hope to see them again on a nicer day. We look for them every time we pass Eagle River now (and we see where the town got its name).
