I do know how overwhelming a Haliaeetus eagle can be very close up. I

me fall over the cliff edge.

I'd have to say you're very lucky it wasn't a hungry golden. You could've ended up like these unfortunate fellas: http:// www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iFOVi0vJGU

Speaking of "baldy" sightings, I once observed one gliding directly over me in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia once. I was in the Future Shop parking lot and just happened to look up and notice the almost unmistakable (brown body, white head & tail) of one. I'd never ever saw one in NS before, let alone knew that they were even in the area. The other people probably wondered what the hell I was looking at, it was VERY high up.
