Nice pics j b,

I am starting to see more bald eagles around here as they migrate down for the winter, Saw 4 of them the other day.

The dark eagle in your photo is a juvenile bald eagle.

Wheres the road kill?

Never mind you said this is at the dump. Unfortunately our nations symbol is indeed a scavenging trash eater, as much as it is a hunter.

We have both golden and bald eagles here, and from what I have observed the golden's eagles are not at all sociable like the bald's, and the golden's are much more wild/elusive, it is dam near impossible to get near them. I doubt the two species would put up with one another in such close proximity.

Speaking of golden eagles I saw 2 of them yesterday, both catching jackrabbits on the same mountain side. I took some pics but they where so far away that you cant see much detail. I'll post them in a bit.

Here is one of the clearer golden eagle photos I took yesterday. I saw 2 of them hunting jackrabbits on the same mountain. This is one of the times this guy missed his target. Note the golden color on the head and body. As I said earlier this is not a very good photo this one was probably half a mile away.

I do have another golden eagle in flight photo that is clearer some where in this thread.

Thanks Sakari.  I really appreciate it.  I am being very careful.  I am keeping my eyes open. Everytime I go outside the house I have to do a quick lookaround to make sure its safe.

So I took a hike out at Antelope island yesterday, here are some of the things I saw.

A small group of bison I woke up just after sunrise.

2012-12-29 Antelope Island 106.JPG

Bison are not native to this island, but they were native to the surrounding Salt Lake valley.

A wise rancher who owned the island (in the late 1800's) planted them here because he thought they where going to go extinct. This heard has since been used to reintroduce bison into their former ranges around the west and mid west.
