Bald Eagles! My husband and I camped in the spring near Paxson Lake, a large lake in Interior Alaska, earlier this year and were surprised to see a large eagle nest with two very attentive parents. One would always be sitting in the nest while the other would hunt and bring food, and then they would trade off. Photo Courtesy Birch Leaf Photography
My husband and I were camping this past holiday weekend and much to our delight, our camp spot was near an eagle nest. All weekend we watched the male and female trade off, most assuredly sitting on eggs and waiting for them to hatch. Here is just one of many photos taken this weekend during one “changing of the guard” session! Taken May 27, 2018 near Paxson Lake, Alaska.

The bald eagle was chosen June 20, 1782 as the emblem of the United States of America, because of its long life, great strength and majestic looks. The fierce beauty and proud independence of this great bird aptly symbolizes the strength and freedom of America. Photo Courtesy Richard Mitchell
This bald eagle just landed in this black spruce tree in Paxson, probably hoping to find some remains of salmon to snack on. Photo Courtesy Scott Skaleski
