Golden Eagle •

Golden eagles are excellent hunters. They often work in pairs while hunting: one eagle drives the prey to its waiting partner. The talons on their feet kill and carry the prey, while the beak is only for eating. Prey includes marmots, hares, mice, and sometimes slow-flying birds, martens, foxes, and even deer, sheep or goats. They used to be feared to snatch babies. Photo Credit: Vladimir Kogan Michael
