Golden eagle hunters work in pairs. One goes up a ridge and holds the other's eagle while the owner of the eagle goes down to the valley floor and calls the eagle. The eagle on the left responded as commanded by her eagle hunter. The eagle on the right had exerted its independence and had only flown part-way down the ridge and had parked on a rock. Her eagle hunter was on his way to collect her when suddenly she took off and landed on this hunter, who was very surprised to see a second eagle coming in for a landing!
