Eagle Antics Cartoons: Golden vs White-tailed Part 1

I enjoy drawing cartoons, most notably the antics of Scotland’s white-tailed eagles. In my blog I’m going to tell you some of the stories behind the cartoons I’ve drawn over the years, as I have based many of them on real-life observations during my many hours watching these birds.

First up, differences between the two Scottish eagle species: the golden, and the white-tailed. 

In the cartoon below, it’s the leg feather comparison.  The feathers on a golden eagle’s legs extend all the way down to their feet, but a white-tail’s only reach half way. An adaption for scavenging and catching fish.
