On my recent trip to Albuquerque, I came across a golden eagle sitting on a power pole on the side of the road. I stopped, got my camera ready, turned around and took a couple of pictures. I was between Vaughn and Roswell on HWY 380, about halfway between. By the way, there is nothing but power poles on the plains there for birds to roost. The road is lined with crows nests on several of the poles. Getting a picture of an eagle in the wild is a thrill.
