Eagles are large birds of prey similar to real-life eagles. Lord Ardrian Celtigar is said to have a trained sea eagle. Houses Condon, Graves, and Mallister have eagles in their sigils. The Mallisters also control the Cape of Eagles.
The wood dancers of the children of the forest are said to have called upon eagles to fight on their behalf.
A Clash of Kings
While traveling through the Skirling Pass, Jon Snow sees eagles nesting in the heights and hunting in the valleys. Jon kills the skinchanger Orell, but part of Orell's consciousness lives on within his eagle.
A Storm of Swords
Varamyr Sixskins takes control of Orell's eagle, but he is later traumatized when Melisandre kills the bird.
||Eagles have sharper eyes than men.
