The Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) is a highly prized bird for Falconry, due to its sheer size and hunting prowess. Capable of killing any size animal up to the size of a fox, or even a wolf.
The Golden Eagle is fairly common in The Highlands of Scotland and often seen soaring on thermals above high ground, where the thermals drive up the hillsides.
A Golden Eagle's territory may cover up to 60 square miles and they mate for life, using the same nest.
