A pair of eagles screaming perched in an evergreen tree. Bald eagle vocalizations are characterized as weak screams or high pitched shrills and even giggles. Seen here along the Chilkoot Trail where the Tlingit tribe carved out a trade route through the rugged Alaskan terrain. The Tlingit people make up two groups in the Haines and Skagway area, the Chilkat and the Chilkoot, not to be confused. The bald eagles pictured here are a mated pair. Mating for life, bald eagles select a mate around the age of 4 or 5. Fairly impressive considering these raptors maintain a monogamous relationship to the ripe old age of 30 plus years.
