Golden Eagle at El Toro Marine Corps Air Station

Made a quick stop coming into work this morning by the El Toro Marine Base. Ahhhhh… flying overhead is the Golden Eagle that I have heard has been in the area. There was some small bird chasing it.

OK, so its not such a small bird chasing it… it is a Red-tailed Hawk (4ft+ wing span).
