Golden Eagle In The Kodar Mountains Gouache Painting – The inspiration to paint a golden eagle was it’s ability to thrive in the Siberian tundra and taiga not often frequented by people. Over the years it has faced local extinction, moving it’s habitat from areas now frequented by people to areas that have little or no human population. In Eurasia, the Golden Eagle’s habitat extends from the Kola Peninsula to Eastern Siberia. It is a fierce and large predator with a wingspan of 6-7 feet wide (1.8 – 2.3 meters). It builds its nests high in cliffs and mountains. Also, it has a home range or territory of over 70 sq. miles (200 km2.
The Kodar Mountains
Part of the Golden Eagle’s habitat, the Kodar Mountains is a smaller mountain range than the Altai Mountains. Like the Altai Mountains, it is a mountain range in the Transbaikal region in Irkutsk Oblast but also extends east into Zabaykalsky Krai.
