The Golden Eagle is a huge bird of prey. It is the largest carrion in North America and the national bird of Mexico. They eat small mammals and rodents, picking up their prey with strong feet and sharp talons. Although most of the bird’s feathers are dark brown, it gets its name from the lighter, golden-looking head and neck feathers.
