Bald Eagles Zoom In 4

Mixed Breeds
Photograph by Norbert Rosing

Among birds of a feather only one—the eagle on top—has real plumage. The others are artificial residents of Jean Keene’s backyard in Homer. Each winter for 23 years, Keene, now 78 and known as the “Eagle Lady,” has fed the eagles fish scraps and other donated food, including the occasional roadkill. “I’m a great lover of birds and everything in nature—and I hate to see anything go to waste.”
