Discover Western Montana’s Golden Eagle

Making their home in Montana year-round, and more common to spot than bald eagles, golden eagles can range in length from 33 to 38 inches, with a wingspan of 6.5 to 7.5 feet. Very large raptors with mostly brown coloring and horn-colored bills, golden eagles nest on cliffs and in large trees, hunting in prairies and open woodlands. Noted for their strong eyesight, golden eagles can often spot their prey from long distances. They largely feed on jackrabbits, ground squirrels and carrion and will occasionally feed on deer, waterfowl, grouse and weasels. For more, visit Montana Field Guide.
