White Eagle

This last week on numerous occaisions, we have seen a mostly white eagle flying around the lodge. I was finally able to take some photos of it flying around and fighting with another bald eagle. I sent the photographs into Alaska Department of Fish and Game, and after they sent it around to numerous bird and raptor experts around the country, the concesus was that it is a partially albino bald eagle, or a bald eagle with leaucism. Very cool!
