After work yesterday, I swung back by the location where I observed the immature Golden Eagle. I did not see the eagle again; although, I did observe a bird I saw about a week ago, an adult dark morph Red-tailed Hawk.
I wonder if it will make this area home for the winter? The bird was observed close to Renken Ln. I have observed it perched on the old fence posts near the small cattle pond on the northwest corner of Barry Rd/Renken Ln and Hwy A as well as perched in nearby trees.
The link to the location for those in the area - directions from Jefferson City:
