Hmmm, I thought I had implied that in my post. That they would prefer to be free to roam, but that captivity was their only choice for life.
Nice pics, btw. There was less snow when we visited.
There was a pic there of a large gathering across the river in the trees. Was it yours?

The photos would not be mine. I've never given them any.

My wife volunteers at the University of Minnesota Raptor Center where they treat eagles, hawks and owls. Periodically they have raptor releases of successfully treated raptors in public parks which draws large crowds.

Other raptor centers can be found in Sitka, Alaska and Haines, Alaska. We have been to both.

I hope we can visit both of those places eventually. Aging Roadtrek permitting.....

Sitka is on an island accessible only by cruise ship or ferry but there would be no need to take along a B to Sitka. Haines is accessible from the Alaska Highway. There is a variety of good campgrounds there. You can also get to Haines via a short ferry ride out of Skagway, AK also accessible off the Alaska Highway. We drove down to Skagway, took the ferry to Haines and then drove back up to the Alaska Highway.

I will probably sit many hours on this web cam. I became so attached to the eagles of Decorah Iowa. Family had 3 hatch. This cam was done by some research people, I became so attached to this family of eagles. They captured and put a tracer on one of the juveniles. Loved every minute of it.. Love Eagles. Thanks for this posting.



My absolute favorite youtube video...must be watched full screen to really appreciate it.

The National Eagle Center has outgrown their facilities and there are reports they may build anew.
