A few days ago, driving west on U.S. Highway 2 near Shelby, Montana, we came upon this Golden Eagle nest. The only other one I've seen was at a great distance in Alaska some years ago. This nest was about 50 feet off the road, easily watched if it weren't for complete lack of highway shoulders there, and traffic with Montana's attitude about speed. A second adult bird was at the nest until just before we had our 15 seconds of opportunity to take photos. There were two chicks in the nest, possibly three.
