    Fantastic! Thank you so much for sharing these amazing images.


    • My pleasure. Thanks to Paula and Troy Scott for setting up the bait piles and cameras and recovering the photos.


  2. Awesome! (Except now my husband wants to put a dear cow in our front yard.)

    So glad the “captures” were successful. Hope they can get the eagle banded. Nice owls, too.

    Success! I’m in no way tempted to hold one, but – like Deb’s husband – eager to landscape with my own dead cows. Chicago’s first nesting bald eagles for probably 150 years were just located. Perhaps goldens await a properly redolent invitation.


    • I’m not sure they would find Chicago the sort of place they’d want to spend a winter vacation in, but what do I know?


  4. My abiding image of golden eagles is the pair nesting (so sensibly!) above a whiskey distillery on a Scottish island. However, even though they tumbled round the bowl of the landscape and we could walk and climb to within an extraordinarily close distance from their nest we never saw them like this fabulous specimen. Roll on the net-gun and a successful capture!


  5. Wow, what a wonderful series; the image of the great-horned owl is especially haunting.

    And congratulations on attracting the eagle.


    • Congrats to the Scotts for their persistence and to Trish and Mike for having faith that we would attract enough eagles for their project — a real leap of faith.
