48. Golden Eagle

When I first saw it, I thought it was a person sitting at the top of a hill. But the binoulars showed what clearly looked to be a Golden Eagle, in the hills and dunes behind the Snowy Plover nesting site at Abbott's Lagoon. It soared out over the hils, over the nest sites. Yet I was a little worried that it might be some sort of large hawk; there had been several large birds of prey flying over during the day, and I had noticed earlier the difficulty in getting perspective. Fortunately, two Turkey Vultures also came gliding in, coming quite close to my bird. My eagle had a clearly larger wingspan.
