Hi all -
On a trip around Mason Co today, I came across a Golden Eagle at the Skokomish river delta —
Viewed from SR104, just north of house #2780 at a nice pull off with access to the water’s edge that allows a nice view of the flats — the Golden Eagle stayed well out on the flats, perching on various snags. Looked like a subadult, most likely a 2nd year, with white tail and some white in the base of the primaries and a nice golden head — Plenty of Bald Eagles in all plumages around, so it took quite a while to be sure it wasn’t just another confusing young Bald Eagle.

Good birding,
