The Golden Eagle or Aquila chrysaetos is one of the best known birds of prey in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the most widely distributed species of eagle. It belongs to the family Accipitridae.

The Golden Eagle or Aquila chrysaetos is a very large, dark brown raptor with broad wings. Golden eagles are North America’s largest predatory bird. They are dark brown raptors with long, broad wings. Their length ranges from 70 to 84 cm, and their wingspan ranges from 185 to 220 cm.

Golden Eagle or Aquila chrysaetos males and females are similar in appearance, but females are much larger than males. Female weight ranges from 3940 to 6125 g whereas male weight ranges from 3000 to 4475 g. Adult  Aquila chrysaetos are largely dark brown, except for a golden area near the crown, nape and sides of the neck and face. The tail is grayish brown. The eyes of adults are dark brown. The bills and claws are black, while the cere and feet are yellow. The legs are feathered all the way down to the toes.

Adults of both sexes have similar plumage and are primarily dark brown, with some grey on the inner wing and tail, and a paler, typically golden color on the back of the crown and nape that gives the species its common name. Unlike other Aquila chrysaetos species, where the tarsal feathers are typically similar in color to the rest of the plumage, the tarsal feathers of golden eagles tend to be paler, ranging from light golden to white.
