"Eagle on Ice" ~ Photo by James Geddes: "This eagle seems to be pondering his reflection in the ice. What is he thinking? Does he realize it is a reflection? Or is he peering through the ice to the fish below ."..
Golden eagles use their speed and sharp talons to snatch up rabbits, marmots, and ground squirrels. They also eat carrion, reptiles, birds, fish, and smaller fare such as large insects. They have even been known to attack full grown deer. Ranchers once killed many of these birds for fear that they would prey on their livestock, but studies showed that the animal's impact was minimal. Today, golden eagles are protected by law.
