    The Golden Eagle is a large, dark brown raptor with broad wings.
    Its size is variable:
    it ranges from 66 to 102 cm (26 to 40 in) in length and it has a typical wingspan of 1.8 to 2.34 m (5.9 to 7.7 ft).
    In the largest race (A. c. daphanea) males and females weigh 4.05 kg (8.9 lb) and 6.35 kg (14.0 lb).




    Swaer, this thing is HUGE!

    Considered as a pest by many here at my place, since they can take a lot of lambs. And there are a LOT of them around here, mainly because they are a protected specie. I would even guess that picture are from Norway?
