Learning About Bald Eagles
Bald eagles have brown feathers with white heads, white tails, and yellow beaks. They also have powerful talons on their feet. Prey is caught and carried by them. A young eagle has brown feathers across its body and head, rather than its famous white tail and head.
Bald eagles are large birds and one of the most recognizable birds in North America. They live near water and eat mostly fish, but will also eat land animals.
Bald eagles have a huge wingspan of 5 to 8 feet long! From beak to tail, their body length ranges from 2 feet to over 3 feet.
Bald eagles usually live near water and prey on fish, but they do take other prey when the opportunity arises. Bald eagles can be found as far north as Alaska, as far south as Northern parts of Mexico.
One of the most iconic symbols of the United States is the bald eagle, which is the nation’s national bird.
The Bald Eagle can fly as high as 10,000 feet – that’s almost 2 miles above the ground!
