S.W. Extremadura Spain - Eagle ID (1 Viewer)


David Tasker
Saw this bird on the 24th October last, initially perched on a high pylon & thought it was a Spanish Imperial Eagle through bins. However, from the photos attached, it may possibly be a Golden Eagle?

The countryside was very hilly dehesa.

I would appreciate any expert guidance.

The fool that MrT doesn't pity
White patches on the upper wing as opposed to on the leading edge seems a good identifier for Golden
