Your going have to help me out here - Why would you cross them?!?
Excuse my ignorance if this is obvious as I don't fly eagles.

Guy in Canada has bred a Harris/Golden cross. Photos I've seen has it look like a giant Harris' hawk.

This sounds like an excellent cross, it could produce a more manageable sized hare hawk. Imagine a male from this cross at around 4 to 41/2 pounds, yes please
