These gorgeous hills in Sunol hold a surprising number of golden eagle nests and I am lucky enough to be part of a team that observes them. While I followed our team leader up into the hills on the trail, we passed this lovely scene. A few minutes later an eagle flew right over our heads — only about 10 feet up. The majesty of these birds is hard to describe. We observed another nest in the area and watched mom eagle bring a juicy rabbit for her 5-week old nestling.
