Bald eagles are a common and majestic sight in Alaska. The state is home to the largest population of bald eagles in the United States, with an estimated 30,000 individuals. These iconic birds of prey can be spotted throughout Alaska, soaring high in the sky or perched on tree branches and cliffs. Bald eagles are attracted to Alaska’s abundance of fish, which they catch using their sharp talons and powerful beaks. They also mate and nest in the state’s lush forests and along its rugged coastlines. Observing these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat is an unforgettable experience, and Alaska offers some of the best opportunities in the world to do so.
