In this protected region, also known as “The Valley of the Eagles”, warm thermals keep the Chilkat River open well into November and a late salmon run attracts thousands of bald eagles along a 2.5 mile stretch. This image […]

This Fun Friday post comes from my last trip to the Venice Rookery. While photographing the large variety of birds arriving at, departing from, and nesting at the rookery, I captured this Laughing Gull flying over with a hitchhiker, a frog:

Missouri Bison
