21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Eagle and Masts

While walking to the Alaska Raptor Center from Downtown Sitka, Alaska we passed the harbor where many fishing boats were docked and spotted a Bald Eagle sitting on top of one of the masts. He was quite comfortable there; staying for at least ten minutes.
