Big Bird

Presenter Carrie McClellan of Yukon Wildlife shares a laugh with visitors at the Alaska Bald Eagle Festival last week, as resident Bill McRoberts dons a swan outfit. Organizers said 282 people participated in the five-day festival. A presentation by astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell drew 153 to the festival banquet Saturday. The festival raised about $15,000 for the eagle foundation.
