Lost Buck Leads To The Sighting Of A Very Rare Golden Eagle In Ohio
AllOutdoor Staff 01.30.14
One man’s loss is another man’s gain – at least that’s the case in this story.
A man that has a trail camera on his land recently had its lens pointed at a White-tailed Deer carcass that was most likely lost by a hunter. Little did he know that he was about to witness something pretty darn amazing!
A Golden Eagle, its namesake nape aglow, eyes the venison steak. This photo and the others were taken on the morning of December 22nd – last Sunday. Golden Eagles are quite rare at any time in Ohio. Ohio maybe gets a half-dozen reports annually in migration, mid-March thru April and October/November being prime times. Overwintering birds are few and far between, but might be showing an ever so slight uptick.
