Nesting Golden Eagle. Pics Added

9 posts in this topic

Found this very Large nest, probably 12-18 feet across about 150feet up this ledge. Getting a close up was pretty much an impossible task due to the sheer distance away. I had to hike about 1/4 mile through some firey sage brush, buffalo grass, 3 creeks, and one large snake(3+ feet long, Yellow Bellied Racer) while wearing shorts and a tee shirt, being ravaged by a huge gnat hatch.

This nest is located in the Teddy Rosevelt National Park in Western North Dakota in the south Unit. Park Rangers can tell you how to find it. (8 miles in or so).

Nice ones, Paul!

When I was out tromping through the Teddy many years ago it was rattlesnakes I had encounters with, not racers.

Looks like you earned those fine pictures. Hey, if it was easy everyone would be doing it. gringrin

Great pictures Paul. I can imagine the thought going through your mind when you stepped on that snake in that territory.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
