Tuesday, some very special guests joined GTU's live show from Liberty Park.
A couple of birds were with us... a Golden Eagle and a Red-Tailed Hawk.
Golden Eagles are not only a symbol of freedom, they're symbolic to Utah's Native American tribes as well. Red-Tailed Hawks get their red feathers when they reach adulthood and they also play a big part in Native American Customs.
The Golden Eagles are one of the best known birds of prey in the Northern Hemisphere. They use their agility and speed combined with extremely powerful talons to snatch up a variety of prey including rabbits, marmots, squirrels and even foxes.
They live in territories that may be as large as 60 square miles. They are monogamous and may remain together for several years or even life.
The eagles nest in high places like cliffs, trees or telephone poles.
The birds that were on the show live in the wild during the fall and winter months, and return to their handler during the spring and summer.
