Lydia--

hmm-mmmmmmm... the only way to be sure is to see it yourself.

Goldens are usually on the east side as you pointed out,
BUT, Bud Anderson claims he knows of a Golden Eagle nest
on San Juan Island.. and I have a good friend who is a
falconer and a few years ago was flying his Harris Hawk
at Ft. Lewis when she she had the great misfortune to land
in a tree where a tiercel Golden Eagle was perched higher up.
My friend was hustling over to where the HH was perched
and when he rounded the tree line, he found the Golden
on the HH on the ground..it had already killed it.

so, we know there are some Goldens over here.
