A golden eagle passes through and lands on a falconer's glove( the man is  holding raw meat). The golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) is one of the best-known birds of prey and is the most widely distributed species of eagle. Like all eagles, it belongs to the family Accipitridae. These birds are dark brown, with lighter golden-brown plumage on their napes. Golden eagles use their agility and speed combined with powerful feet and massive, sharp talons to snatch up a variety of prey, mainly hares, rabbits, and marmots and other ground squirrels. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a country in Western Asia at the northeast end of the Arabian Peninsula. 17.02.2020  © 2020 Didier Ruef
