A Golden ... Redtail?
We were flying R/C planes at the soccer field at Overlook on Sunday
morning when somebody asked, "What's that bird doing there?"
There was a big bird sitting in the middle of the field.
It looked like some sort of raptor. I keep a
monocular in my flying case (it's not the first interesting bird
to show up at the flying field), so I pulled it out. The bird had its back
to me, but hmm, big raptor, all dark brown except for golden feathers
on the neck and a few light ones on the back ... "Hey, guys, I think
that's an immature golden eagle!"
