But isn't that what all bird feeders do, give free meals to those that are hungry. Or it only matters because these are Eagles.I don't agree with what is going on here but I thought it was neat to see so many together. I'm lucky if I see 1 a year and that one will be at least a half mile away or so.

If I had that many Eagles in my yard I'm sure some fish would have to accidentally fall in the yard a few times. ;):D

A bald eagle can kill a kid, or even an adult in seconds, idiots I tell you

According to video notes, this was at Dutch Harbor. I was stationed on Adak (further out in the Aleutian chain), '72-'73. Lots of photo opportunities, for BE's, while I was there. May have to dig through old slide boxes to see what images I have from that time.

The beginner clicks the shutter and says "Let's see what I got." ... The experienced photographer thinks "How can I capture what I see?"

I've seen em do that before. park about an hour south of here had a big fish die off, so they dumped em all in the fields. Eagles looked like vultures, they were everywhere

In Alaska, the location of that video, it isn't uncommon to see that many eagles gathered together during a salmon run.
