- We saw lots of eagles, up close and personal today. Homer is sort of a winter feeding ground for the big birds of prey, and they must eat well because the eagles we saw today sort of looked like big, black chickens. They were perched all over the spit--on rooftops and light posts, signs, and just hunkered down on the ground.
Snow fell softly today and there were definitely more eagles than tourists out and about.
I think I could get used to Homer in the winter.
