1/26/13 - Voluntown, Rte. 49 / Gallup Rd. - GOLDEN EAGLE - first seen soaring turkey vulture-like over tree line occasionally cupping wings, eventually gaining altitude giving good binocular and scope views, Overall chocolate brown with buff and silvery tones in wings maybe a trace of white, small buff head, very large bird. I did get some poor photos I will gladly pass along for comments.
Also large flock of Horned Larks that I didn't get a chance to sift through.
