CHIRPIE CIRCLES IN A THERMAL
Photo and caption by charles baughman
"Chirpie" is a young female Golden Eagle who is just learning the art of flying in thermals. She is circling and climbing but she does not want to stray far from the nest area just yet. Her nest area is a short distance from my house on the Deschutes River Canyon, Tumalo, Oregon.
