Susan and Martin went off on a Wild Eagle Hunt.
They got a phone call from Police Dispatch. The report was that a Golden Eagle had been spotted on the ground west of town. Concerned observers called police dispatch and they called Martin.
With directions about where the Golden Eagle had been seen, Susan and Martin headed out to check on things.
Susan kept her camera handy and filmed over twenty minutes of their search in the miserable, windy, cold and snowy conditions of their search, first a half mile off in one direction, then the other.
With no sign of a Golden Eagle, they headed back to the car.
Shortly after, they saw the Golden Eagle fly up and land on a power pole.
Martin’s guess was that the Golden Eagle had a big dinner and full crop when spotted on the ground. After a little while to digest the meal, it headed back up to the pole and was able to fly around fine.
We’re glad he’s okay!
