You have another Golden Eagle Scott!! Click on image to download

From my expert...

It is a Golden Eagle, based mostly on the third photo - note the paler base of the tail, the hint of gold on the neck, and the relatively small head (the head and beak of Balds look very heavy).


I would rather spend my life close to the birds than wishing I had wings

Great news Lori! Thank you for the work you did to get that bird id'ed.
Now all they need to do is get a little closer than half a mile from me so I can get some decent pics. Titter
Please thank your expert for me the next time you're in contact.

It is isn't it Scott!! Clapping wooohoooo so you now know that you have a certain population of Goldens there and yes they do need to be a tad more cooperative Green LOL

Way to go BF, bring us more and I do indeed tell my expert each time we talk how much we all appreciate the help.

This is a great idea. The juvies here are really hard to spot. I have seen a few this fall. I will certainly bring them here for better observation and learning if I find them. Another great place to learn more......thanks Lori and Judy B.

Mornin' Donna how awesome to see you and thank you! :hello:

I think you and I are in the same boat with our eagles in our areas in that getting anywhere close enough for a good shot is tough going. In identifying these juvies the shots must be as close as possible. To give you an idea the expert had a hard time with Scott's last juvie there above. If it hadn't been for the 3rd shot it wouldn't have happened so you and I can see the gauge and it's pretty high.

I'm out there with you though on a juvie hunt! I've seen about 6 of them now but too far away to bother trying for shots to put here. We'll get them GF!!! I have two goals this winter the first is to get an Owl of any kind and the other is a Golden Eagle of any age! Good luck to us both Titter

Lori...This isn't exactly about a juvi but I thought you might like to read it anyway as it is about a Golden. This is the wildlife center that does work with the Norfolk nest...Buddy lives there.

Hi Guys,

I have an eagle pics, which is possibly a Golden Eagle. Pls check this out and tell me the truth Smile
This eagle feathers were wet, so hard to say the real colors.



Thanks !!!!

Hakristi
