Golden Eagles are beautiful. They soar and are better than the common Bald Eagle. Nothing against those national eagles, but look up and maybe you will see one of those near you. Most of them are found out West but apparently they are moving in? That would be sweet. They are called Golden Eagles due to the gold feathers and looks about their heads. Hence the name.

It would be lovely if the article would also incluse some context, such as how many golden eagles were found in this same region in prior years, and how many juveniles would normally be expected in a healthy population.

ARRey sez: We've seen several of them here in NW Wright County. They nest nearby. They're very interested and quick to investigate when our dog is running loose outside.

How do you distinguish a golden eagle from an immature bald eagle which is not old enough (4-5 years) to have developed the characteristic white head and tail?
