Golden eagle        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Golden eagles are widespread and not uncommon in many places in western North America.   These were photographed in the Carrizo Plain and near the San Jacinto Wildlife Area, both in southern California, and in northeaster Colorado and Denali National Park, Alaska.   The portrait is of a captive bird.   Images of juvenile eagles soaring with common ravens are here; photos of a very accommodating juvenile bird are on here.
