Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos)
The adult Golden Eagle is brown to dark brown with the crown and nape feathers edged with golden-buff or tan. Its huge size, broad wings and relatively small bill are make it distinctive. It is most abundant in the mountainous and hilly regions of the western part of North America. It hunts from perches or while soaring at great heights with its wings held horizontally instead of the shallow V of Turkey Vulture wings.
