They are huge! I was killing ground hogs and throwing them out in the field for the turkey buzzards to dispose of. I had shot three hogs that morning and threw them out. What you don't see in this picture are the dozen buzzards that gave this eagle a wide berth when he pounced on this really fresh hog. He made the buzzards look small - and they are big birds.

I was about 50 yards from a young one once at Olympic National Park. It was a good 3 ft tall. Very impressive birds.

Great photo Rad. They are gorgeous birds, for sure. A week or so ago as I started into the woods to collect blanks, there was one sitting in a tall pine near the end of the trail.

And a big thumbs up for shooting groundhogs (we call them woodchucks here but same thing). I hate those little SOBs. I am a 3rd generation woodchuck shooter out the bathroom window. My Grammy Wrigley got a few out the toilet window many moons ago, my Dad got one that way when I was a little kid, and I got one a few years later after they'd remodeled the house and moved the bathroom. Gotta get the nieces and nephew to carry on the tradition.
