The powerful golden eagle faces serious challenges throughout its North American range. In the sagebrush steppe of the American West, the bird is affected by habitat loss from development, fire, agriculture, and invasive plants; collisions with vehicles and manmade structures such as wind turbines; electrocution on power lines; poisoning; poaching; and other factors. Threats are increasing, and golden eagles are a species of serious conservation concern.
