Newer Older

The Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) is a bird of prey found in North America that is most recognizable as the national bird and symbol of the United States of America.
Its range includes most of Canada and Alaska, all of the contiguous United States and northern Mexico.
It is found near large bodies of open water with an abundant food supply and old-growth trees for nesting.
The Bald Eagle is a large bird, with a body length of 70 à 102 cm, a wingspan of 180 à 234 cm, and a mass of 2.5 à 7 kg; females are about 25 percent larger than males. The adult Bald Eagle has a brown body with a white head and tail, and bright yellow irises, taloned feet, and a hooked beak; juveniles are completely brown except for the yellow feet. Males and females are identical in plumage coloration.
The Bald Eagle's diet is opportunistic and varied, but most feed mainly on fish.
