Redtail Hawk? No - they have a distinct Kee-Kee call.
With some hidden instinct, I looked straight above me and soaring high overhead I saw this:
Actually, there were five total - two with the distinct white head and tail, and three smaller ones in a dark color, which I can only assume were juveniles.
Do they have a nest nearby? We live on a long ridge between two branches of a river, and hopefully there are enough fish in the river to support these eagles. I see them occasionally (maybe several times a year) around here, but have never seen what I believe to be a family of eagles in these parts.
It was definitely my thrill for the day.
Have you ever seen a Bald Eagle? Or a family of them?
Are they common where you live?
