Schweizerischer Nationalpark - King of the air. Under total protection since 1953. Wingspan up to max. 2.2 m. One aerie is near the road Pass dal Fuorn

King of the air. Under total protection since 1953. Wingspan up to max. 2.2 m. Takes its prey by surprise: in summer mainly marmots, in winter ungulates and carrion. Its talons can puncture prey's skull. Pairs remain together for life. Two eggs laid in April; the firstborn often kills its sibling (Cainism). Golden eagles vehemently defend their territory (50-100 km2) against intruders. Can live up to 20 years.
