Golden Eagle

A splendid flier, the Golden Eagle spends most of its time gliding. When it dives groundward, it could reach speeds of 240 to 320 km/h (150 to 200 MPH). It does so occasionally, for it primarily eats mammals such as marmots, rabbits and hares, which are taken from the ground. Occasionally it strikes large birds such as geese and cranes in mid-air. Contrary to legend, the Golden Eagle seldom preys on domestic animals.
