The bald eagle is an opportunist, says photographer Klaus Nigge, whose images of bald eagles in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands appear in the January 2015 issue of National Geographic. “He’s a scavenger. Even if food is stinky and old, he’ll take it.” Here, eagles still await a free meal near the home of a woman who used to feed them roadkill and fish scraps.
