Bald eagle soaring against the sky
The bald eagle, seen here soaring against the deep blue Alaska sky, is an iconic symbol of the United States and a beloved species in Alaska. This majestic bird of prey can often be seen soaring through the skies of Homer, its wings spread wide as it searches for its next meal.
With its piercing eyesight and powerful talons, the bald eagle is a skilled hunter and an important part of the ecosystem in Homer and throughout the state.
