Bald Eagle on the Beach, Alaska

See the new bald eagle photos.

This adult bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) was observed foraging for bits of food in a shallow tidal stream on a broad sand beach. The bits of white in the air are snowflakes — it was a wet snow and made the eagle look pretty miserable.
