Around noon today I observed a 1st year Golden Eagle flying along the  
MN River bluffs near Ney Nature Center in the northwest tip of Le  
Sueur County. As the bird headed north it crossed Hwy. 19 into Scott  
County, then interacted with an approaching Bald Eagle. I have posted  
a couple photos of the duo on my blog (address below). The bird headed  
north out of sight around 12:10.

This is the first Golden Eagle I have found in the MN River Valley  
during winter (they are very rare migrants spring and fall in the area).
