    Very interesting photo, showing the sun’s motion every single day for all eight years.

    It does make me think some institution could break the record if they decided to, though.

    The Chilkat Valley must have very good Hair Club for Eagles.

    8 years as a student and still in college? Sounds like too much beer!

    Do the observers have names for each eagle? Some people have that habit, useless as it is.

    Which tells us that blue whales are under tremendous encroachment pressure from humans who rarely look out the windows. [port holes are only found on actual seagoing ships and not floating hotels]

    The long exposure film shows the daily path of the sun for the entire time. Once analyzed it should show some interesting changes in earth’s rotation.

    So, the Wally Byam eagle caravan is in Alaska in November? I wonder what food source blossoms in November to sustain the crowd?

    Have they considered changing the name to “Ripley’s Believe it, or So What!”?

    Most eagles in America the country… it is a tough race for most eagles in North America. Brackendale, British Columbia also has a massive eagle population in the Winter, and in some years it exceeds that of Chilkat.

    Chilkat’s best year was 3,988, where as Brakendale’s best year was 3,796. So, Chilkat is the winner over multiple years.

    The 400 clean up after the Eagle Convention where the members relax, party, play practical jokes on each other, dress up in costume for prizes (last year’s winner came as Sarah Palin) and then set up for the next one.

    The student did not forget the camera. He was in prison doing 8 years and 1 month for indecent exposure.

    Ancient Blue Whale legend tells of an encounter by the ‘Prince of Whales’ in the late 1970s with a sinking ship. Having seen a TV set that was still on as it went down, the whales have been looking for the Love Boat’ ever since.

    Didn’t “some idiot” make the bald eagle, our nation symbol, off of the protected list of birds/animals while he was the leader?
