On Monday, September 17, Lanny and I saw a Golden Eagle in Boyd County near the intersection of Cedar Road and 468 Road. We had stopped along Cedar Road just west of 468 Road and were looking for birds. I spotted a large raptor on the ground on a hilltop on the north side of Cedar Road. We could see its head and shoulders clearly. We were about 25 yards from the eagle. The sky was cloudy and the wind was light. The eagle turned its head and we saw the golden nape. When I put the scope on the window mount, the eagle flew away. I got a quick glimpse of the wings in flight. There was no white on them.
