I stumbled across this long post about golden eagles Aquila chrysaetos complete with a number of videos. This blog The Texas Cichlid Massacre is pretty interesting and covers topics as varied as paleontology, fish, wildlife, and crytozoology. Please visit his blog to read the golden eagle post. If anyone is hankering for a dose of using golden eagles to hunt in Mongolia, below is one of the youtube videos from his blog:

Thanks to a post by Steve Bodio, I just discovered Aquiling, a wonderful blog written by Lauren, a young student from Oklahoma. Her latest post about watching falconers fly golden eagles in the Scottish highlands was just fabulous and I urge anyone with an interest in flying eagles to check it out.
Here’s a nice overview of the changes that will go into effect regarding falconry. Among the changes: States and Tribes will have oversight in the future; master falconers may have 5 wild raptors (3 of which may be Golden Eagles) and unlimited captive-bred raptors (excluding eagles) if used for falconry; the feds will no longer be responsible for issuing permits for Golden Eagles — they will be viewed like other raptors.
