I took a hike from Carver's Gap out to Grassy Ridge looking for Snow Buntings 
and keeping an eye out for Golden Eagles along the ridge lines.  By the 
time I got back to the car 3 hours later, all I had was a really nice hike and 
company of 5 acrobatic Ravens, which was pretty cool.  As I was driving 
out at about 3:30, I saw a large dark bird soaring above the tree line near 
Picnic Shelter #2, and I skidded to halt in the parking area.  Golden Eagle.  
It went down in the tree line 
just north of the picnic shelter so hopefully it may still be around.  Photo
