I actually live in BC, Canada! We get a ton of bald eagles, red-tails and coopers!

Where do you live? In WY?? These guys nest all over the mid-west - they migrate to Argentina in the fall (mid-late Sept) and then return in April. They are usually as common as Red-Tails in Colorado during the summer. I hope you get to see more!
