Moose walking up Anchor River

Today we started out slowly with a nice breakfast for Fred’s birthday and then drove north to Anchor Point to search out some more eagles.

Mt. Redoubt
  We had been told several eagles frequented the beach at low tide.  As we drove into the beach area, we passed a day use site where there was an eagle perched on a fallen tree.  He didn’t stay long, so we continued on to the beach.  No eagles.  So, it was back to the day use area in hopes of seeing the other eagle.  Sure enough he or another eagle showed up, sat in a tree nearby and eventually we fishing right in front of us.  Five minutes later he was back to the same perch.  As we waited for him to do more than sit, a moose wandered up the stream toward us and several juveniles flew overhead.  Hunger finally made us return to the trailer for lunch.

After lunch we stopped at the Islands and Oceans Visitor Center and walked down through Beluga Slough to see what was residing there.  We did see a ring-necked pheasant across the way.

Then on a quick drive down toward the spit we spotted a bull moose in the slough.  He didn’t stay long.  I guess he was camera shy.

After a birthday dinner of chicken cordon blue, we went looking for eagles on the spit and found a couple just sitting around.

We picked up ice cream sandwiches for our birthday celebration.

Tomorrow will be our last day in Homer and top on the list is to do laundry.
