Golden Eagle
The Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) is one of the best-known birds of prey in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the most widely distributed species of eagle.
These birds are dark brown, with lighter golden-brown plumage on their napes. Golden Eagles use their agility and speed combined with extremely powerful feet and massive, sharp talons to snatch up a variety of prey. The most prevalent prey are hares, rabbits, marmots and other ground squirrels.
For centuries, this species has been one of the most highly regarded birds used in falconry, with the Eurasian subspecies having been used to hunt and kill unnatural, dangerous prey such as Gray Wolves (Canis lupus) in some native communities. Due to their hunting prowess, the Golden Eagle is regarded with great mystic reverence in some ancient, tribal cultures.
Unfortunately, the same boldness and power that led to them being held with reverence in early cultures has led to wholesale persecution in the last few centuries, due to the perceived (and often greatly exaggerated) threat Golden Eagles pose to domestic and game stock.
