The Bald Eagle… Haliaeetus Leacocephalus

The Bald Eagle is mainly solitary outside of his breeding season, which lasts from November to April depending on the location. There is one brood per year and the female lays 2 eggs which range in color from white to blue. The incubation period is 35 days and the chicks are fully fledged after 10-11 weeks. Sadly usually only one chick normally survives. The Bald eagle reaches maturity in 5 years, and can live up to 40 years.

The Bald Eagle was once a common sight throughout the USA and most of Canada, but now it is in grave danger. Pollutants and insecticides ingested by its prey have worked their way up the food chain and is threatening its survival. Its diet is mainly fish, also small mammals and carrion.

Identification: 30-43 inches. Very large, brown, hawklike bird with a white head, tail and stout, hooked yellow beak. Immatures variable with a dark head and tail witha black bill.

Voice; A series of squeaky, thin cackling or chittering notes.

Habitant: Seacoasts, lakes, rivers, and marshes.

Range: Breeds in the forested areas of Alaska and Canada south to Oregon, N.Idaho, Great Lakes area and N. New England: generally along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts and in Florida. Winters from S. Canada south, especially along the major river systems of the interior.

Info gleaned from The Audubon Society Field Guide.
