Golden Eagle | HD Documentary


Despite a wingspan of almost two and a half meters, this golden eagle hides its presence by hugging the mountain slopes, hoping to catch its prey off-guard. The domains of this majestic bird of prey range from the highest peaks to the deepest valleys, and cover a hunting territory of up 100 square km. This unrivalled predator feeds on a wide range of prey, including many species of birds and reptiles, but mostly it prefers mammals such as rabbits, hares and groundhogs; it will even hunt foxes, boars and deer. Over the four seasons, the golden eagle exploits the varied resources found through its terrain. In the mountains during the spring, young groundhog pups are a vital food source for its own brood. It hunts at low altitude, sticking close to the mountainside with its languid flight, then diving suddenly onto potential prey. But groundhogs are extremely cautious animals, and work together to stay on watch: a system of call signals warns of any danger. The warning spreads throughout the valley, causing a rush to the safety of the burrow, although there is always someone who’s a little absentminded.  Hidden between the slopes, the eagle evades the vigilant eyes of its unsuspecting victim.  This incautious groundhog can do nothing when confronted with the king of the skies.

  1. I cannot take any credit for this documentary. But, I wanted to share it for all to see how great creation is, And how Great is our God.

  2. Just happened to fly right by the Camera 7 times before catching it's prey… Why don't you show things how they are in nature in stead of using domesticated animals in your videos… Do it legit…

  3. Mexico's Emblem. 200 pairs left in the country alone plus those in captivity.
    The Golden Eagle has better chances of survival North of the border and in other parts of the world.

  4. its like the cameraman almost 'knew' the perfect position to place his camera in order that he would be three feet from the kill…..nudge, nudge, wink, wink

    +sighs

  5. Is the golden eagle present in Austria? Here lives a very similar eagle, called "Steinadler", which means Stone Eagle?

  6. Despite golden eagle being incredibly dangerous, in captivity they are very sweet and playful but their version of “playful” can be very dangerous as they can snap your arm in half with out even meaning to.

  7. so these guys are like devils/gods in the nature , they watch everything from high above and choose their pray, if u are a rabbit or a rat u better not be in their list for the day
