It is illegal even to have an eagle feather in your possession without a proper permit (Gordon, ). Nevertheless, humans are still responsible for many bald eagle .

The Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) is one of the most magnificent birds of prey in the British Isles and is one of two of britains resident eagles, the other being the White-tailed Sea Eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla).

In Behavior of the Golden Eagle, the action patterns and activities of the golden eagle are described and most are illustrated in great detail.
