golden eagle

Returned to Coyote Valley yesterday morning to find the pair of eagles at West Palm Ave. I think it might be a parent and child. It was pretty darn foggy - actually most of Coyote Valley was fogged in until after noon yesterday. So my luck was doubled - I was treated to many shows by the eagles, some very close, and at one point the sun came through briefly and allowed me to get the best detail I have been able to get to date of this, my very favorite bird.

Appears on Cornell's "all about birds" as an example photo.
