2130 - Eagle at River's Edge

2130 - Eagle at River's Edge

Chilkat, Alaska - 2010; Bald Eagles, found only on the North American continent, can fly up to 30 mph and dive for their prey at speeds of up to 100 mph. With their keen eyesight, eagles can spot fish at distances of up to one mile. Along the Chilkat River, a warm water reservoir creates an opening in the ice that provides a fresh supply of late salmon and other fish during winter months. This adult eagle perches high over the river in pursuit of its next meal.
