Golden Eagle

By Mike_Smith
Thank you to Bob, Bob Paige1 for his generous user award on my previous picture of the Greenfinch appreciate it. Tuesday i went to the Falconry Centre in North Yorkshire, mainly to photograph something slightly different, and i enjoyed the day. So the above Golden Eagle was taken there, thanks for looking.

A huge bird of prey, with only the white-tailed eagle larger in the UK. With its long broad wings and longish tail, it has a different outline to the smaller buzzard. It likes to soar and glide on air currents, holding its wings in a shallow 'V'. Eagles have traditional territories and nesting places which may be used by generations. They have been illegally killed in the past and are still occasionally poisoned, or have their nests robbed.
