Not my best captures of these monstrous raptors but a fun sequence – plus seeing one is always special.
Christmas Eve found me in the foothills of the Colorado Front Range and it was there I spotted two of them in the same tree. That doesn’t happen often. I waited quite a while, hoping for some action, and one did finally take flight, performing a quick circle before returning to the same tree.
The distance was a bit much so the pics aren’t as great as I would have hoped but I will take what I can get when it comes to golden eagles. 😉 The last couple of images do a nice job of showing off the golden’s beautiful plumage and that crazy seven foot wingspan.
