Giant eagles speak Common and Auran.
A giant eagle typically attacks from a great height, diving
earthward at tremendous speed. When it cannot dive, it uses its
powerful talons and slashing beak to strike at its target's
head and eyes.
Skills: *Giant eagles receive a +4 racial bonus to Spot checks

Training a Giant Eagle
Training a giant eagle as an aerial mount requires a
successful Handle Animal check (DC 24 for a young creature, or DC
29 for an adult) and that the creature be willing.
Giant eagle eggs are worth 2,500 gp apiece on the open market,
while chicks are worth 4,000 gp each. Professional trainers
charge 1,000 gp to rear or train a giant eagle, and riding one
requires an exotic saddle. A giant eagle can fight while carrying
a rider, but the rider cannot also attack unless he or she
succeeds at a Ride check.
Carrying Capacity: A light load for a giant eagle is up to 300
pounds; a medium load, 301-600 pounds; and a heavy load, 601-900
