April 6, 2013: Golden Eagle

Golden Eagle. 4/4/13 (Wolf. Oesterreich)

This photograph documents the flyover of a juvenile Golden Eagle, No. 261 for the Park List.  Note the two white "windows" (base of primaries) in the wings, white tail with distinct dark terminal band, and the small head.  A juvenile Bald Eagle would show more white mottling in the wings and body, with a larger head.  Golden Eagles are listed as "Accidental" in Story County, with at least 4 previous records.
