Chilkat! The greatest gathering ground for eagles in North America. This trip will be experienced by a small group( Max 6) searching for unique images of the majestic Bald Eagle. This is a location know for its rugged scenery, eagles and the possibility of late season brown bear photography.

"Almost 4,000 American bald eagles gather along a 5-mile stretch of the Chilkat River near Haines and Klukwan, Alaska each fall. This great wildlife spectacle is the largest gathering of bald eagles in the world. Attracted by a late run of spawning chum salmon, eagles come from all over Alaska, British Columbia, and as far away as the state of Washington. Warm water upwellings in the river bottom keep some stretches of the Chilkat ice-free through the winter, providing a diet of salmon carcasses when food supplies elsewhere are exhausted. Starting in late October, hundreds and hundreds of eagles can be seen along the sandbars or in nearby cottonwood trees. Two dozen or more eagles in a single tree are not uncommon."
