Golden Eagle

BOP Golden Eagle head shot

Golden Eagle – Birds of Prey Coaldale

I took a drive out to the Banff area to locate a few Osprey nests. I stopped at Vermilion Lakes and I saw elk crossing the lake from the lookout. This prompted me to get a closer look.  On my journey around the lake, I heard a bird and pulled over to see if I could locate it!  This Golden Eagle was sitting high in the tree. I climbed up the hill thinking that it would be gone momentarily.  It stuck around and watched me scramble up the side of the hill.  What an amazing sight!
