Bald Eagle Face

We saw so many "critters" at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center.  You could get almost, almost close enough to touch them.  Of course there was some sort of barrier/fence between the public and the animals that one could not touch them, but it was so cool to get that close.

The Conservation Center takes care of injured animals and uses those animals to educate the public about them. So, this eagle must've had some sort of problem because he was perched inside of a barn.  I'm guessing he/she probably could not fly for whatever reason, but I really don't know for sure.

Speaking of getting close to the animals, this eagle was located right on the other side of the barn that housed two male moose!  If it wasn't for the fence, one really could touch those guys!  They were that close!  Too close for me to get a decent shot if you can believe that!
