American Bald Eagle Close-up Portrait

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. This sea eagle has two known sub-species and forms a species pair with the White-tailed Eagle. 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 fractalius filter was added to this image to fine tune it, both for saturation and detail.

    Again your eagle is feasting on one of the Snippy Goldfish fry. (Is fry the plural of fry? I suppose I could look it up.)
