GOLDEN EAGLE (ad. or near-adult) soaring into tree by "Hunter's Gate" at Ridgefield NWR this a.m. (3/23/09). Bird moved around a lot; next spotted in tree along channel w. of Canvasback Lake, then in tree along road e. of Rest Lake. Fantastic views at close range allowed study of overall golden-brown plumage; legs feathered to toes; relatively long tail; less massive head and bill than Bald Eagle; slight dihedral to flight.
