A few days ago I thought I caught a quick glimpse of a Golden Eagle at the boggy pond across from us, which is a somewhat unusual sighting in these parts.  I’m sorry to say I did not get a picture, but have included this one that I found on google images so you can see what it looks like: 

As it turns out, golden eagles are not really found around here.  It is more likely that I saw a bald eagle, which closely resembles the coloring of a golden eaghe before it reaches maturity.  There are several areas in Maine that see Bald Eagles.  I found this blog which has photos of an amazing encounter with a pair of them – truly a once in a lifetime event.  http://northernmainebirds.blogspot.com/2010/06/swimming-eagles-in-lakeville-penobscot.html
