Baby Golden Eagle Update 7-23-2010

For the past month and a half I have been mesmerized by a beautiful Golden Eagle chick maturing in her nest in Lyons, CO.  My friends now tell me I am obsessed, and I believe that is true.  I have spent hours sitting in the park below her nest with my binoculars and video camera watching her sit there watching me.  I am now in Missouri visiting family, so I don’t know if she will fledge while I am gone, but I know she is close.

I have enjoyed meeting many people who have come to the park to photograph her or just are in the park to play and are excited to know that we have this wonderful neighbor.  Below I am sharing a couple incredible photos by two of those photographers.

What has been amazing is to see how fast she has matured.  We think the egg hatched in mid May, which means she is now about 2 and 1/2 months old.  I saw her first in Mid June.  The photos below really show that progression.  This photo was taken by David Stephens on July 5th.
