San Ysidro Golden Eagle and Poggi Creek Thick-billed Kingbird

Leaving San Ysidro today about 2:15 I noticed a large shadow on the hill behind the border McDonalds of a bird flying by. When the bird came into view it was a young Golden Eagle with a white tail thickly edged in black and light spots on the wings. The American Crow chasing it looked tiny in comparison.

The Thick-billed Kingbird at the Poggi Creek Greenbelt reported by Richard Norgaard last week was hawking insects from the group of trees in the center of the grass, just west of the Starbucks. Great looks at it but horrible photos through the binoculars.
