This summer I checked a lot of birds off my life list which admittedly at this point is still relatively easy considering my status as a newish birder. Although I had seen bald eagles before, it didn’t get old when I saw around 10 or more during my visit to northern Saskatchewan this past summer.
Given that Saskatchewan has the world’s largest inland concentration of bald eagles, this wasn’t overly shocking. But, what was fantastic is that I got very lucky and spotted a golden eagle too.
