I was surprised to see a Golden Eagle soaring about midway up Sycamore Cyn. today around noon. Beautiful bird (immature, with a white base to the tail and white "flashes" in the wings), which really dwarfed the ravens that were harrassing it.
Have folks seen one around so far this fall? It's a semi-regular spot for them in late fall, probably owing to the extensive grassland up there and behind Rose Hills Cemetery. I wonder if they drift east along the corridor to forage at Powder Canyon or elsewhere.
