This, too, is kwana

Juvenile golden eagle in Spring Creek Basin.

Worst pic ever of an eagle. 🙂 But this one was soaring over Spring Creek Basin recently, and here, we revere these magnificent raptors.

This is a juvenile golden eagle (https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Golden_Eagle/id), and it was one of two reveling in the strong thermals the other day (while I was shivering against those same frigid winds!).

Love.

(Kwana means eagle in the Ute language (http://www.native-languages.org/utah-animals.htm). Possibly specifically bald … but I took it in general terms.)

This is really not a bad pic,TJ. Birds are difficult subjects, especially in flight, so you got a good one. Here’s to the other “Kwana!”
