America’s Symbol, the Bald Eagle

Most visitors to Alaska will surely see a bald eagle before they leave the state. The bald eagle population is reported to be more than 30,000 in Alaska, and Haines, Alaska, located in Southeast, boasts one of the largest concentrations of bald eagles in North America.

Every October, eagles flock to the nearby Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve. Eagles come for the late run of salmon; people come to watch and photograph them as they feast. The 48,000-acre Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve is accessible by road on Highway 7 or via the Alaska Marine Highway System’s ferry or by cruise ship.
