The vereut eagle inhabited the hills of eastern Eriador. It was blue over most of its body and wings, but its hue reached a dark purple near the face and wing tips. The Eagle's beak and eyes stoodout in stark contrast, for they both were a bright yellow color. While hunting, they flew silently, low to the ground, enabling them to the tops of hills and ridges to surprise their favorite prey: gophers and Rock Hyrax. This method of hunting was startling to those were unacquainted with the beasts, and many an Eriadoran had suddenly found himself in a brief, bewildering combat at the crest of a hill. Several Gwathuirim wore scars on their faces attesting that these chance meetings could be dangerous.
