Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A very large, dark eagle with massive beak; often conspicuous due to large size. In flight, identified by very long diamond-shaped tail. Soars high, occasionally in groups, often over mountainous terrain. Frequently feeds on roadkill. Perches on telephone poles and dead trees. Young birds are more golden, and get progressively darker with age.
