Detailed Description

This short video features incredible and graphic images and video of golden eagle prey. These birds are eating machines. USGS biologist-rock climbers install nest cameras to study the eating habits of golden eagles and their young in the Mojave Desert. This work goes towards creating a Prey Availability Habitat Model to better site green energy projects so that they will have the least impact on golden eagles. The majority of this video is Public Domain with exception to the specific shots listed as owned by the copyright holders.
