The Literary Drover No. 1717

Reference to the Golden Eagle has brought additional interest to The Jhon Collector Mysteries. Mention of personal experience has resulted in, conservatively, a deluge of communications from people wanting to know more.

You ask, I do:

The Golden Eagle preys mainly on small to medium-sized mammals, which include hares, rabbits, ground squirrels, prairie dogs, and marmots. The black-tailed jackrabbit, considered a keystone species for the Golden Eagle, is favored.

A Golden Eagle may pursue larger prey, which includes cranes, swans, deer, and domestic livestock, and have been observed killing mountain goats, bighorn sheep, pronghorn, coyotes, badgers, and bobcats. When necessary, the Golden Eagle will eat fish and carrion.
