Denali National Park,
You see more golden eagles in Denali than bald eagles. Golden eagles are more likely to feed on ptarmigan, marmots and ground squirrels. Golden eagles arrive in Denali as early as March. They are called golden eagles not because of their body color (which is brown) but because of some light (golden) brown feathers on their head and neck. They have a wing span of about six feet and you can see them soaring in the wind or sometimes perched on a tree.
