About Golden Eagles
The Golden Eagle is one of the largest, fastest, nimblest raptors in North America.
They typically prey on mammals ranging in size from ground squirrels up to prairie-dogs, marmots, and jackrabbits.
Golden Eagles can have a wingspan of up to seven feet and weigh more than seven pounds.
The coastal range in the greater Bay Area has the largest golden eagle population in the world.
Some Golden Eagles live at Los Vaqueros year-round, while others just pass through the area.
Nesting usually occurs from early February to late June. See below for stats on how many eaglets have fledged at Los Vaqueros.
