[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Two Golden Eagles taken at the Tracy Aviary.
Golden Eagles use their agility and speed combined with extremely powerful talons to snatch up prey including rabbits, marmots, ground squirrels and many other prey and large mammals such as fox, wild and domestic cats, mountain goats, ibex, and young deer. They will also eat carrion if prey is scarce, as well as reptiles. Birds, including large species up to the size of swans and cranes as well as ravens and greater black backed gulls have all been recorded as prey. They have even been known to attack and kill fully grown roe deer. The huge eurasian subspecies are used to hunt and kill wolves in many native communities. Where their status is regarded with great mystic reverence.

Hi Lotti,

You captured this moment beautifully. The Tracy Aviary must be a wonderful place to visit. Your pictures from there are all very good. I wish I had started taking pictures at your age. You have a wonderful future ahead of you. Keep shooting.
