Tawny Eagle as Totem by Ravenari Tawny Eagle as Totem by Ravenari
Original available at Etsy

*

‘Oh-ho-ho, I suppose you think I’m like all the other eagles, and I dearly like for people to underestimate me. After all, I’m the only eagle brave enough to steal from humans! The only eagle bold enough to take what I believe is mine. I will grip life and death in my talons and make meals of both, and if you want me as an ally, I hope you have a canny mind, because I love a challenge. The warm, dry, desert places lend me wisdom, and if you respect me, I can show you the magic of the sun, the winds, and what it is to see clearly, across all things.’

Keywords:

Sky pirate. Day flying. Scavenging. Embracing warmth and heat. Take what you can get. Flight in all worlds. The bigger picture. Insight. Keen observation. Knowing when to speak. Carrion connection. Life and death cycles. Understanding death. Savannah, desert and steppe wisdom. Mistaken identity. Solar energy. Solar deities.

Hm, actually, I did try processing it again as a print, and it's just not going through? Not sure what's happening there. It's definitely a DA-end problem, hopefully the glitch resolves soon!

Unfortunately the DeviantArt standardised sizes didn't mesh well with the Tawny Eagle design, so I wasn't able to offer prints on this one. At least not here. I might try RedBubble and see if they're more flexible.

I mean it's in the family Accipitridae like all eagles, but it's more closely related to the Steppe Eagle (and used to be confused with it). It's got a significant colour variation to the Golden Eagle. Golden Eagles are more closely related to the Verreaux's and Gurney's eagle (which it says on the page you linked! :D)
