Golden Eagle

Aquila chrysaetos


Fantastic Golden Eagle


Open desert and uplands of West Mongolia


This is one of three Golden Eagles kept by Kazak Eagle Hunters in West Mongolia. I am loathed to call it a pet. We took it out to hunt for foxes but thankfully we didn't catch one! The other photo shows us on horse back in the snow.

I saw a video of Kazak Eagle Hunting. It is amazing how intelligent these eagles are.
