Golden eagle

A few shots of the golden eagle in the tree:

The head is smaller, compared to his size, than the Bald eagle's.

Crows watching eagles, as usual.

From directly underneath his branch, the juvenile's white patch at the base of the tail is clearly visible.

This eagle perched quite low in the tree; almost within reach, if we'd had a fishing pole or similar stick. The Bald eagles we usually see prefer the tops of the tallest trees.

  1. Those crows in shot give an excellent idea of just how big that eagle is. What a great sighting!
