General description.

You won't likely find a Bald Eagle in your backyard, but if you do you won't easily mistake the national bird of the United States. The Bald Eagle's white head and huge size make it easy to spot when perched or soaring. Bald Eagles eat primarily fish, so you will have the best chance of spotting one near the Ocean or a lake. Once endangered and still protected, the Bald Eagle has made a fabulous comeback and can now be found in most states. The call of the male Bald Eagle is a loud, clear cac-cac-cac. The call of the female Bald Eagle is said to be more harsh and often broken. Bald Eagles nest in trees and on cliffs and lay two or three dull white eggs.

Population and distribution.

Across North America, with heavy populations in Alaska and parts of Canada.
