Feathered Friends Released Together


Lucy Harrell and Gail Batt release two juvenile bald eagles Nov. 19 as part of the American Bald Eagle Festival. The eagles – rehabilitated at Bird Treatment and Learning Center in Anchorage – bonded during their treatment and were released at the same time on the Chilkat River. This was one of the first times there was a duel release. About 200 people turned out to see the birds fly off across the river. Jane Pascoe photo.
