Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is not just about turkeys…. Here, two Bald Eagles vie for a piece of chum salmon caught along the Chilkat River north of Haines as they partake in their own Thanksgiving tradition. Every year beginning in late October and continuing through February, up to 4,000 Bald Eagles gather along a four-mile stretch of the Chilkat River to feed on a late run of salmon. Happy Thanksgiving to everybody!
