Abstract

We report the unusual observation of an adult bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) in southwestern Nuevo León, Mexico, in the Chihuahuan Desert south of known distribution of the species in the Mexican Plateau. The bald eagle was perched over natural grassland vegetation near croplands at the edge of a Mexican prairie dog (Cynomys mexicanus) town in ejido El Potosí. Identification was made in the field, and the sighting recorded by photograph on 11 January 2015.
