Golden Eagle

The Golden Eagle is a huge bird of prey, with long broad wings. Females are larger than males and can weigh up to 7kg or about 15lb.

Eagles have traditional territories and nesting places, often on high cliffs, which may be used for generations. The species is very widely distributed across Eurasia. In Britain they live on the wild moors and mountains of Scotland, favouring islands and remote glens. A few live in similar habitat in the north of England.

Golden Eagles have very good eyesight and can spot prey from a long distance. The talons are used for killing and carrying the prey, the beak is used only for eating. They prey mainly on small to medium-sized mammals, including hares and rabbits. In addition to live prey, Golden Eagles often feed on carrion, following crows and other scavengers to a meal. They also catch fish, rob nests, and steal food from other birds.

Our eagle is called Talis, and she came to us in 2018 after being rescued from neglect.
