A large North American raptor with an average wingspan of 7'. Their bodies are generally dark brown or black, but the distinctive white head does not appear until adulthood (about 4 or 5 years of age). Both the feet and beaks of bald eagles are yellow/orange, but again, they may be black until adulthood. Their primary diet is fish. They are listed as an endangered species, but are making a strong comeback and are now in the "least concern" category with increasing populations)
Near large bodies of open water with large tree snags to nest in.
Alaska has more bald eagles than anywhere else in the world, and I'm enjoying seeing them literally every day almost everywhere I look.
