The national bird of the US is the bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus): sea (halo) eagle (aeetos) with a white (leukos) head. "Bald" does not necessarily mean "no hair" but once was defined as meaning "white"! The bald eagle is the only eagle unique to North America.

Eagles are a member of the Accipitridae family (hawks, kites, and old-world vultures), the bald eagle being a sea or fish eagle. Eagles are divided into four groups by their physical characteristics and behavior.

There is the southern bald eagle which is found in the gulf states from Texas and Baja California across to South Carolina and Florida, south of 40 degrees north latitude. The northern bald eagle is found north of 40 degrees north latitude across the entire continent with the largest number of northern bald eagles are in the Northwest. The northern bald eagle is slightly larger than the southern. Studies have confirmed that in their wanderings/migrations, the northern and southern cross into each others home areas: ie northern traveling south and southern traveling north! Therefore the subspecies of "northern" and "southern" bald eagles has been discontinued.

Bald eagles can fly to an altitude of 10,000 feet and can achieve speeds of about 30 to 35 mph. Bald eagles weigh between ten to fourteen pounds with females being the larger of the two. Eagle bones are hollow to alleviate weight problems that would interfere with flight. The beak, talons, and feathers are made of keratin, the same material as our fingernails. Bald eagles have 7,000 feathers.

Wild bald eagles may live as long as thirty years and birds in captivity, even longer. Bald eagles are of course, at the top of the food chain.

An adult bald eagle is able to lift about 4 pounds. They eat mainly fish but will eat small mammals and birds depending on the food supply in their territory. They will also take advantage of carrion (dead and decaying flesh). The eagle is a strong swimmer and sometimes does go into the water when trying to catch fish. If the water is very cold, it may be overcome by hypothermia.

Around four or five years of age, the same time they are attaining their white head and tail, a bald eagle will reach sexual maturity and will pair up.

NOTE: Peter had advised earlier when I had asked about lifetime partnering :
"If an eagle loses a mate it will try to find another one. They generally will mate for life, but if they are unsuccessful at breeding for a few years in a row, they may break up and find other mates."

A bald eagle may hunt over an area of 1,700 to 10,000 acres, but their home ranges are smaller where food is present in great quantity. Eagles build their nests in large trees near the water (coasts, rivers, lakes) giving them an outstanding view of their territory.

During the nesting period, bald eagles will lay 1 to 3 eggs which will be incubated over a period of 35 days with both parents sharing the duties of caring for the eggs. A nesting cycle is about 20 weeks. Eagles do not molt all at once which would affect their ability to fly. It takes almost half a year to replace feathers, starting with the head and working downward.

Bald Eagles are hawks (Accipiter in Latin). Hawks are divided by their wing shapes and the way they fly: falcons, accipiters, buteos, kites and eagles. The bald eagle is considered one of the sea-eagles.

Coloration: The adult bald eagle coloring is a deep brown except for their head and tail which are white with their bill and feet yellow. Their eyes are straw colored.

The juvenile has dark head, neck and tail, body dark to black and often mottled with pointed feather tips buff. Adult coloring happens over time thru slow molting out (the buffy tips wear off) and the head and tail looking muddy, then buff, then white at four or five years of age. The juvenile beak and feet are black. [Juveniles are easily confused with young Golden Eagles. Bald eagles lower legs are not feathered apparently because of the fishing that they do - water-logged feathers are heavy. Goldens are feathered to the toes.

All raptors have excellent eye sight and bald eagle are no different. They have a double fovea...two centers of focus on the retina. The "regular" one is for focusing on the horizontal plane with the other higher on the retina which concentrates focus toward the ground. The birds not only see and process two images, one from each eye, as do most animals with eyes on the sides of their heads, but they also process two more images from below themselves. That is four things at once. Now you know why a perched bird will sometimes turn its head completely upside down when looking skyward. The ground-image fovea is then looking up.

Bald eagle talons are extra-large with grooves underneath to help them grasp fish which can be slippery as well as large prey - locking them in! The foot pads are rough. The beak is very heavy (fishing eagles have some of the most powerful beaks).

A bald eagle pair will remain together as long as they are alive and usually as long as they are successful in producing and rearing young. They engage in various greeting and courtship flights, spending time together within their territory. They utilize feeding, day roost and night roost perches, and with a definite dominance heirarchy for their use. Two adults spending this time and sharing these activities, will almost certainly be a pair.
