Rare sight

Normally golden eagles nest on cliffs in this area of the country because there are lots of them to choose from. This photo, taken today, is a female golden sitting in her tree nest. This is only the third one in a tree that I've seen. I have no idea how long she's been setting and will monitor her often to make sure all is okay.

  1. There was a Golden pair a few years ago that had nested in a cliff next to the dirt road. Maybe the traffic was too much so they moved their nest the next year a bit farther and high up in a tree. Raised a pair of eaglets.
