The day after Christmas we went to the Marsh again, and finally got to see the Golden Eagle that's been hanging around there. He's an elusive character as he is keeping to himself. We were looking for Hawks as there seems to be plenty here, but spotted something bigger on the hydro tower with 2 crows sitting closely by him. After getting closer, we saw it was an eagle. A few moments later, he flew off to another tower. I think he was getting annoyed with the crows....lol. We could see his 'golden' head and knew it was the Golden Eagle. We started approaching the tower and he let us get fairly close to take more photos, although he was watching us all the while. After a little bit, he flew off again. We have now seen him a twice on our trips. Maybe there will be a third time :) Canon 7D Mk ll & Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM + Canon 1.4x lll teleconverter – @560mm, 1/2500, f8, ISO 1250, +0.7 exposure.
