The golden eagle is a carnivorous bird found mostly in North America. It is dark brown in color with golden brown feathers near the nape. They have great speed, power, strength, agility and sharp talons which allow them to hunt prey. Golden eagles hunt rabbits, hares, ground squirrels and marmots. As opposed to the Bald eagle, the golden eagle is more of a predator than a scavenger. This bird is highly regarded in the society due to its strength, appearance and courage. Native American tribes believe that the golden eagle has mystical powers.
