Mated Pair of bald eagles perched in an evergreen tree in the thick backcountry of the Chilkoot River valley. This cone-filled conifer provides a strong base for this couple to gaze deeply at each other.
Fun fact: Bald eagles typically mate for life. Once they find a partner in adulthood, they remain together. How romantic! These lovebirds are turned facing each other with levels of communication that we have yet to understand.
During the late salmon run in this region, these birds will feast and eventually rear baby eagles. This area of Alaska provides a shelter for the world’s largest concentration of bald eagles.
