Reference to the Golden Eagle has brought additional interest to The Jhon Collector Mysteries.
Bald Eagles are larger than Golden Eagles in average height and wingspan, but there is not much difference in the average weight. One way to identify a Golden Eagle from an immature bald eagle is the leg plumage. A Golden Eagle’s legs are covered with feathers. Which is why it is known as “a booted eagle”; an immature bald eagle’s lower legs are bare.
