Do this before activating all towers in Mountain Tundra or you will have to start new playthrough.

Pet the eagle 4 times.

Press square to call eagle. Move your hand around using the left analog stick until golden ripples appear. After a bit they will form a spot. Rub around that spot and sparkles appear replenishing your full stamina. You can do this as many times as you want in a row.
