Report #10 Kodiak, Alaska July 12, 2017 Wednesday Partly cloudy & 59 degrees Part #2 Of 3 80 Pictures

Our walk continued…..

 

 

 

A wet juvenile eagle

 

Fishing boat at low tide

 

The eagle watched

 

Took off flying

 

These boats were coming in from a day's fishing

 

Off the beaten track

 

More birds

 

Hillside homes

 

Close to the work

 

Mostly commercial boats

 

Except for a few local anglers

 

An eagle sighting

 

Raven

 

Gulls at attention

 

Calendulas

 

Ravens on the rocks

 

Tsunami warning posted throughout the town

 

Sailaway Pictures

 

The upper road goes to the homes

 

View of downtown Kodiak

 

This is where we walked

 

A container ship pulled in behind us

 

Hillsides of another harbor

 

Look what we found……sea lions

 

Tucked away in a cove

 

Dozens of sea lions

 

Enjoying the sun peeking out

 

Bird rookeries in these rocks

 

Barely a ripple in the water

 

Dropping the lines in Kodiak

 

Wind generators were off today

 

Boat coming in

 

Millions of birds here

 

The Independence

 

More birds hidden in the rocks

 

Eagles could be here too

 

Leaving Kodiak

 

No more rain

 

Fishing – number one industry

 

Not your typical tourist town

 

Float plane – the only way to see the bears

 

Largest crane in town

 

Tall mountains

 

This eagle flew right over our heads

 

Checking out the ship

 

Stately bird

 

Close up

 

Coming in

 

Even closer

 

Trees make a good backdrop

 

Blue sky does too

 

Never did land

 

But came close

 

Never tire of seeing an eagle

 

His beak open

 

Fierce-looking

 

Predator

 

Best eye-sight of all

 

 

Enjoy…..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This may be the last one we see

 

Looking for sea life

 

Birds all over the cliffs

 

These are tufted puffins

 

Hard to identify

 

Looking for sea otters

 

They like to hang around the rocks and kelp
