Golden Eagle
Aquila chrysaetos canadensis

 

July 11, 1805

"I saw several very large grey Eagles today they are half as large again as the common bald Eagle of this country.  I do not think bald Eagle here qu[i]te so large as those of the U' States; the grey Eagle is infinitely larger and is no doubt a distinct species." —Meriwether Lewis
