The most recognizable eagle in North America
is the bald eagle. A large powerful predatory bird,
bald eagles are a type of fish eagle. They fly low over the water and snatch
up fish with their powerful talons.
Adult bald eagles are dark brown to black. They have a distinctive white head
and a sweeping wingspan of 2.5
m. They live all across North America, especially near wetlands and
coasts. Bald eagles were once endangered throughout
most of their range but are making a comeback.
