Featured in The Birds on May 16th, 2011.

The golden eagle is one of North America’s largest raptors.

They are mostly dark brown and golden-brown, with white patches on the underside of their wings.

Their legs are feathered down to their feet, which have yellow skin. Their beaks are narrow and dark brown.

When soaring their wings are held horizontally flat and at a 90 degree angle to their body.

Photo taken at the Birds of Prey Centre in Coaldale, Alberta, Canada.

I am an amateur photographer living in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.

I enjoy photographing the wonders of the world around me; whether that means capturing images of animals and wildlife, scenic natural landscapes, or man-made wonders.

I travel all over Canada in pursuit of this passion and my dream is to one day be able to do this full-time.

Thank you for your interest in my work,
Alyce Taylor
