Immature Golden Eagle In-flight #1 - April 22, 2011
I visited Derby Hill Bird Observatory on the southeastern shore of Lake Ontario and saw over 1000 migrating raptors during a 6 hour period. One of the highlights was this immature Golden Eagle. The distinguishing characteristics are a broad white tail band ending in black at the end of the tail and large white patches under the wings. He is heading to his summer range in northern Canada.
