  1. Question. Which is the commonly seen dark hawklike bird in Delaware. We see them flying over open fields and I95 often being chased away by small black birds. Looks like a golden eagle but not sure

  2. Hi there. It sounds like you might be seeing an immature Bald Eagle. They are normally dark with some white mottling up until the time that they are 4 or 5 years old. Then they get the white head and tail. Otherwise, The only other dark, large raptors are Turkey Vultures and Black Vultures that soar around, but I generally don’t see them getting chased around by small blackbirds.
