Accipitridae: Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos)

The Golden Eagle typically lives in mountainous or hilly terrain, and also in valleys and plains during migration in western North America. This eagle is uncommon in the eastern part of the continent. Typical prey is jackrabbits and large rodents, but they are also known to eat carrion and on occasion may take prey as large as deer or Pronghorn.
