Facts about Bald Eagles

By: Elisa Pacheco

The Bald Eagle has, a snowy featherhead(not bald) and a white tail, yellow beak, legs, and feet. This bird can live for 28 years!!! Did you know that the Bald Eagle is the largest Eagle ??? These birds are close to extinction. The Bald Eagle’s diet is a carnivore. Bald Eagles mostly eat fish, died OR alive, small birds, big birds, small fish, and big fish. Female Bald Eagles is about 7 feet tall and Male Bald Eagles are 6 feet. These birds live near the water. The bald eagles eye can see 6 times better than us. Wow, that is SSSSOOOO AMAZING!!!!! I wish I can be an Bald Eagle. Bald Eagles are very are in Maine.Did you Know that Immature bald eagles don’t develop their distinctive white head and tail until are between 4 and 5 years old.

The bald eagle is not picky about how it gets its food. It will eat carrion, steal fish from other birds or hunt for its own. Their most important non-carrion food is fish, which they catch by swooping down and grabbing fish that are near the surface of the lake or stream.

Mating season: Anywhere from late September to early April, depending on the region. Gestation: The female lays her first egg 5-10 days after mating. The eggs are incubated for about 35 days. Clutch size: 1-3 eggs.During breeding season, the male and female work together to build a nest of sticks, usually located at the top of a tree. The nests can weigh up to a ton and measure up to 8 feet across. Once paired, bald eagles remain with each other until one mate dies, then the surviving bird will find another mate.Bald eagles make a high-pitched squeaking sound. Other interesting behaviors include “talon clasping” or “cartwheel display”, where two eagles clasp each other’s talons in mid air and spin down, letting go only when they’ve almost reached the ground. This is may be a courtship ritual as well as a territorial battle. Body Temperature – About 106 degrees Fahrenheit (41 degrees Celsius)Eagles do not sweat, so they need to use other cooling methods such as perching in the shade, panting, and holding their wings away from their body.

Facts About Eagles

By Rheanna Allison

Only fifty percent of bald eagles fledgling will survive their first year.Only two species of eagles are known to breed on the north american continent. One, of course is the bald eagle. Immature bald eagles are often mistaken for the other north american native, the golden eagle. The golden eagle has a distinctive crown of feathers on the head and neck from which it derives its descriptive name. The golden eagle also has feathers all the way to its toes,unlike the bald eagle, which has featherless feet.

Golden eagles also prefer rugged uplands to the watery habitat of the bald eagle. The bald eagle,scientifically known as Haliaeetus Leucocephalus meaning white headed sea eagle, is not true to its name it our modem language.A bald eagle is,of course,not bald. This eagle was named at a time when “bald” was a common description of white markings on the face or head of an animal.The eagle belongs to the order Falconiformes,a grouping of birds that includes about 275 species worldwide. This order includes those birds considered carnivores by virtue of their unique design,which enables them to hunt and eat meat. The eagles razor-sharp talons,hooked beak,and keen eyesight all aid these remarkable birds in the hunt.
