Aquila Chrysaetos, or the golden eagle, is one of the largest birds of prey. His proud stature and mighty wings make him a beautiful bird. The score describes this eagle. The day dawns and from over the mountain an eagle appears, smoothly riding the wind looking for prey (the main theme). When his eagle eyes spot a prey, he launches an attack. He tosses the prey off the cliff. After consuming the animal he takes off again, the main theme in heroic glory.
