Bald Eagle Coastal Beach Sunset Homer Alaska

A Bald Eagle walks proudly along the beach on the coastal shores of Homer Spit in Alaska, USA as the sunset lighting glistens off his plumage.

Holding on tightly to a meal with his sharp talons, a Bald Eagle stands on the beach at low tide keeping an eye peeled for any signs of intruders along the coastal shores of Homer, Alaska. The remaining rays at sunset highlight the dark brown plumage, the white head, neck and tail and the bright yellow feet, beak and eyes.

The plumage is tapered at the end of the long and broad wings all which aid in the Bald Eagle soaring above the valleys and mountains at Homer, Alaska. A Bald Eagle can sore to an altitude of 10,000 feet and can reach speeds of about 30 to 35 miles per hour.

A Bald Eagle will drop from great heights and dive towards its prey which they can pick out of the water or off the beach with their talons. They will then use their beak and talons to tear pieces off, both which act as reliable cutting tools.

The Bald Eagles of Homer, Alaska average between 30 to 37 inches in body length with a wingspan of about 70 to 90 inches depending on its gender. Weighing about 14 pounds when fully grown, the Bald Eagle is one of the most magnificent types of wildlife to watch from the beach while visiting Homer, Alaska. A winter sunset along the coastal shores of Homer is beautiful and one of the best times to watch the Bald Eagles go about their daily business.

Bald Eagle, Homer, Alaska.
