"There was a big bird -- maybe an eagle," John said and as we watched, the magnificent creature soared into view -- over the trees and high into the sky to circle above our holler.
This picture below is what we could actually see and I stood, trying to follow its flight and capture it as best I could manage. I had my 18-200 mm lens racked out as far as it would go and could actually see through the viewfinder not much more than a dot -- a fast moving dot.
All the rest of these pictures are blurry because they've been cropped really close in order for me to actually see the bird. At first I thought it was a Golden Eagle but that sure looks like a white head in the picture below.
A Golden Eagle has the black-tipped white tail -- and a 'golden wash' on the back of the head. . .
I sure don't know . . . any opinions out there?
Bald or Golden, I hope he/she stays around.
