Eagle River, Alaska
So ... what'dya think?
Do you like eagles? I live in a place called Eagle River ... why do you suppose that name applies here? Uh, ... guess! I've seen as many as 4 dozen or more eagles at a time around here, within a mile of my house ... sometimes 15 or 16 sitting in the same tree at the same time.

As you might know from other posts in other cubits here, I like little birds ... but big birds have their attractions, too. Most people have a romantic idea of eagles ... they are majestic looking birds. But they are also carrion eaters, predators and opportunist garbage frequenters. But if you don't know about or see them in contexts like that, then "majestic" fits. So, in keeping with the "idealized" image of our national symbol, here are some images of Eagles, for your viewing pleasure.
