Birds of Prey, Merritt

The Golden Eagle is a large bird with a wingspan of 6 to 7 feet that lives in mid-Canada down into Mexico, west from Colorado to the Pacific Ocean, as well as the extreme Northeast like Nova Scotia. They can live up to 38 years in the wild preying on rabbits, groundhogs, prairie dogs, turkey, and smaller raptors. Golden Eagles are notoriously disliked by farmers because they believe these eagles prey on their livestock, however they often are removing the already dead members of the herd, known as carrion, or dead decaying flesh.
