Normally, I’d prefer not to show photos with cages, but it’s less distracting in the case of these subjects because of my distance from both them and the bars. This gorgeous pair of Golden Eagles is being rehabilitated at the Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society (O.W.L.) for eventual release back into the wild. I have yet to meet a Golden Eagle in the wild — and they are vastly outnumbered by Bald Eagles.
I wonder if I have seen these soaring high in the skies and mistaken them for Bald Eagles?
