The Twelve Days of Birding (#5)

This one is a Bald Eagle!

On the Fifth Day of Christmas, a mountain gave to me:

5 Golden Eagles!

Two years ago, we got invited to Mt. Lorret to watch the Golden Eagle migration ( see post #3 ).  There were not a lot of eagles around but it wasn’t only the eagles that we were there to watch! A full list is included at the bottom of the post, but here are some highlights: On the way up, we saw a Northern Goshawk flying through the trees – a life first!

When we got to the veiwing place, we saw another Northern Goshawk and of course, the Golden Eagles.  There were doghnuts for snacking on while we watched and as the mountain was still pretty far away there was also a spotting scope to veiw through.

Here’s a list of the birds seen:

  • American Robin
  • Bald Eagle
  • Black-capped Chickadee
  • Golden Eagle
  • Mountain Chickadee
  • Northern Goshawk
  • Rough-legged Hawk
