Bald Eagle

Haliaeetus leucocephalus

The bald eagle is a large bird with a wingspan of up to 2.2m (7.5 foot). It is one of 8 species of fish eagles.



Size: Male - 80cm, Female – 110cm
Weight: 3 – 6.3kg



The bald eagle is the national emblem of the United States of America but their natural range includes Alaska, Canada and Mexico. They live near large bodies of open water.



Fish makes up the majority of their diet but they will also feed on birds, mammals and reptiles. When hunting they swoop down and catch their prey with their talons, they can lift approximately half their body weight!



Large nests are built in tall trees, and both parents raise the young. Their distinctive white head and tail plumage and yellow beak does not appear until they reach 4 to 5 years of age.



Bald eagles are not classed as endangered, however their numbers have declined in the past due to hunting, habitat loss and the use of pesticides.
