A Small American Town Has Been Overrun by Bald Eagles

For most Americans seeing a bald eagle is a rare and exciting sight. But in the town of Unalaska, Alaska the national bird (and national animal) of the United States of America is a nuisance and can be downright dangerous. In Unalaska bald eagles are as common as a beachside seagull. Hundreds of them fly around town lurking above the post office, inspecting the trash, waiting patiently for the local fishing boats.
