In Real Life
The Golden Eagle is a very large bird, with wingspans ranging from six to eight feet from wingtip to wingtip. Females typically weigh about 14 pounds while males weigh in at about 9 pounds on average. Fully-grown golden eagles are primarily golden brown in color, while chicks and juveniles have darker plumage with bands of nearly white on their wings and tail. Golden Eagles typically hunt for food during daylight hours and require about 0.5 pounds of food per day, although they can go multiple days in a row without food before eating 2 or 3 pounds in one meal. They have been recorded as eating over 400 different species of vertebrate prey, with their most common prey being rabbits, hares, ground squirrels, and smaller birds. Rarely Golden Eagles have been seen to prey on larger animals like sheep, deer, wolves, foxes, and wildcats.
Golden Eagles are typically monogamous, mating for several years to life in most cases. Typically mating season is in the spring and females lay four eggs on average, which incubate for six weeks. Typically only about half of eggs laid survive to begin fledging at about three months old. By the fall of the year they were hatched young eagles will leave the nest and wander for four or five years before settling in a territory of their own. Golden Eagles have a large territory of up to 75 or 80 square miles, with nests typically being built in high places, particularly on cliffs.
