The Golden Eagle - Scottish Country Dancing Instruction Video
The golden eagle is one of the best known birds of prey in the Northern Hemisphere. Around 400 pairs live in the wild, open mountains and moors in Scotland. It can best be seen soaring high over the hills in the Scottish Highlands.
Golden eagles are dark brown, with lighter golden-brown plumage on their napes and use their agility and speed combined with powerful feet and massive, sharp talons to snatch up a variety of prey consisting mainly of hares, rabbits, marmots and other ground squirrels.
