This young golden eagle sits patiently on an old fence in the middle of the wetlands of the Sierra Valley near Portola, California waiting for a mouse, ground squirrel or other small animal to make an appearance. This valley is home to a number of raptors, including both bald and golden eagle, osprey and numerous varieties of hawks. In addition to being a dedicated wildlife wetland, there is also extensive farming in the valley, making food plentiful for these magnificent birds. Golden eagles take 5-6 years to attain maturity.
