Observation details

2nd Year Golden Eagle. Watched for ~30 minutes. Bird changed perches twice - clear views of dirty white tail feathers with heavy dark tips (with mottled transition between). Golden nape. Lighter upper wing coverts. Feathered tarsi. Fantastic roadside surprise - while I've seen many Golden Eagles, this is only the second time I've come across one perched.
