Eagle smashes through window with frozen halibut

Posted: Tuesday, May 7, 2019 8:45 am

KODIAK — Among Kodiakans, local resident Stacy Studebaker is known as an avid birder. The naturalist and conservationist, who has lived in Kodiak for over three decades, even conducts her own annual eagle survey, in the Pasagshak area. On Saturday, however, one eagle got a little closer than she was expecting, when it came smashing through one of her living room windows.  

Studebaker had spent her morning taking part in the Kodiak Community Clean-up, working with the local chapter of the Audubon Society, which she helped found in the 1980s. Later in the afternoon, having also attended the reopening of the Kodiak History Museum, she arrived home with a lunch of pancit from Lani’s Filipino food truck. She was sitting in her rocking chair in the living and eating the pancit, about 10 feet from the large front windows. After she finished eating, she walked into the dining room to work on some art projects. Minutes later, she was startled by a loud noise from the other room.
