The Jury is Still Out on This One
Today, I spotted what I thought was a turkey vulture--I'm not good with bird IDs I guess (I learned that years ago when I mistook a turkey vulture for a hawk)--after uploading the pictures and cropping them for close-ups, I realized that I'd need some help with identification, so I posted these in Wildlife Gardeners...so far, with two responses, we are thinking it is either a golden eagle or an immature bald eagle.
I have seen bald eagles around here twice before...that still amazes me as I think of them as being out in the wilderness. Just the other day I saw something large (like an eagle) fly across the field below us. Perhaps I'll see them more often in the coming years.
