This is a 2nd winter immature Golden Eagle which has returned to winter in Delta, British Columbia. Golden Eagles are not common in this area, this particular Eagle wintered here last year & has returned again this season.
The day I took this shot my wife & I were out Eagle watching when she lifted her binos to look at some juvenile Bald Eagles in a tree. She found this Golden tucked in with the bunch which was an exciting moment as this is her favorite bird. Weather conditions were overcast & light rain but what a thrill to have an encounter with this awesome raptor.
