hi,

i take a moment to note that several posts about sikes lake refer to 'the'
golden eagle. over the past few weeks there have been at least two golden
eagles present at sikes lake, and i saw two at one time a couple weeks
ago. those birds were distinguishable in that one has the diamond patches
on the wngs characteristic of first year birds, and the second has the
splotchy body and subterminal white band on the tail characteristic of
second year birds.

i thought i saw a full adult about four weeks ago, but the sighting was too
brief to be sure.

regards,

t
