Golden Eagle over Elk Island National Park

Martha and I took the dog out for some exercise on January 13th in Elk Island National Park and were thrilled to come upon a well-scavenged bison carcass attended by three Coyotes, five Common Ravens and a dozen or so Black-billed Magpies. Perched about one hundred yards away was this juvenile Golden Eagle, our first sighting of this species in the park where it's considered to be a rare spring-fall migrant.

The eagle took flight and passed slowly overhead. Awesome!

  1. I love to learn about the lifestyle of different species of birds and animals. The eagle is one of my favorite birds because its flight is very high. Now I am planning to go to grand canyon tours from vegas. Do you know about any national park or museum there that is good to learn about Eagle’s lifestyle?
