Eagles are alpha predators, which means they don’t have other birds or animals that can hunt them for food.
A marmot, the largest rodent in Europe, hibernates for months. It needs to regain strength, but its movements do not go unnoticed by our predator.
Will the marmots be able to escape the clutches of the golden eagle? If a groundhog discovers a threatening silhouette, it will warn the others of the danger. But there will always be some inexperienced young that will serve as food for the golden eagle.
The golden eagle covers a hunting territory of about 100 square kilometers. They descend in flights of about 300 kilometers per hour and are endowed with one of the best views of the animal world.
