But there's no denying that the main attraction around here these days is the Bald Eagle. They come here in droves to feed upon the spawning salmon. We are, in fact, the Bald Eagle Capital of the World, having counted a record high 3769 in 1994. This year's count was 1617, a high number which makes sense given it was a big (and stinky) salmon run this year.
