Eagles, particularly of the bald variety, are not an uncommon sight around Homer (or Alaska, for that matter). In the winter months in particular, the local population is large. I’ve heard that a significant number of published bald eagle photos have been taken here, and that seems believable. In mid-December, we had a sunny afternoon and decided to go exploring. We brought the camera along, and ended up on the Spit. That day we saw nearly a dozen eagles as we drove down the road.
