This one on 4th Ave depicts the making of dry fish, packing horses and dogs and the cabins and clothing of early 1900s life.

New record: Eight bald eagles in the same tree

Bald eagles hang around Fish Lake road, which is on the edge of Whitehorse.

The birds are attracted to the landfill which is called War Eagle. (A new landfill extension is called Son of War Eagle Landfill.)

Seeing this many birds in the same tree is rare.
