Notes: As I drove toward the exit of Rocky Mountain National park, I saw a dark form ahead. I initially dismissed it as a rock until it suddenly took the shape of a perched bird...a Golden Eagle! I viewed and photographed the eagle for several minutes until some harrasment caused by two Black-billed Magpies and a Red-tailed Hawk caused it to take flight and sail out of view.
